New way to get rid of hard waste coming from July


Brimbank Council will introduce a new way for households to get rid of hard waste in Brimbank from 1 July 2019.

The new At Call Hard Waste Collection Service will replace the annual city-wide kerbside hard waste collection previously offered to residents.

It will allow Brimbank households to book one no charge collection at a convenient time each financial year.

Mayor of Brimbank, Cr Lucinda Congreve said the new service would provide convenience and flexibility to the community.

“The new at call service will be available to Brimbank households from 1 July this year.

“There will be no more waiting to see what collection week has been allocated to your street each year and having to scramble to get everything together in time.

“Now you will be able to make a booking to have your hard waste collected by our contractor at a time of the year that suits you.

“We’re very happy that in addition to hard waste, the new at call service will also accept bundled green waste,” the Mayor said.

Households will be able to have up to four cubic metres of hard waste and two cubic metres of green waste collected as part of the at call service.

Additional collections will be available at a cost.

More details about how to book a collection will be available closer to 1 July 2019.

Extensive community consultation during the development of Brimbank’s Waste, Recycling and Litter Strategy 2018-2028showed strong support for an at call collection model in Brimbank.

In October 2018, Council endorsed the at call service model as the new hard waste collection service to be implemented in Brimbank from mid-2019.
