Hard and Green Waste Collection

Following the announcement from the State Government regarding the reimplementation of stage three COVID-19 restrictions, Wyndham City has decided to reimplement the system by which a waste disposal voucher can be exchanged for an additional hard and green waste collection.  

Submit your request to exchange via Tip Voucher Exchange form and a staff member will contact you.

________________________________________________________________________

Wyndham City offers most Wyndham households three free hard and green waste collection services each financial year.

The service works on a pre-booked system. You will need to book your collection day at least 2 weeks in advance with collection waiting time between 2-5 weeks depending on your location.

If you have tested positive to COVID-19, have been tested and are awaiting results, or are in self isolation, please notify a staff member by phoning 9742 0777 and we will reschedule the collection.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I dispose of items that are on the No list?

Chemicals
Detox your home is a safe, free and easy-to-use service to dispose of highly toxic, unwanted household chemicals such as solvents, poisons and cleaning products. Visit Sustainability Victoria or call on 1800 353 233 for more information.

Why is my property ineligible for hard and green waste collection?

Some Wyndham properties are not eligible for hard and green waste collections for one of the following reasons:

  1. The rates for the property do not include a waste management charge because they are either a commercial property or have private collection.  These properties do not receive Wyndham City garbage collection service and hence are ineligible for hard and green waste collection.
  2. A building has recently been built on the property but the process to update the way the property rates are calculated has not been completed.  Once this process is complete the owner will receive a supplementary rates notice.  Once this notice has been issued (and as long as the property is paying the Waste Management charge (see 1) above)), the property will then be eligible for hard and green waste collections.

If you have any queries about your property's eligibility, please call (03) 9742 0777.

What happens to hard & green waste?

The contractor responsible for collecting Hard and Green waste aims to recycle as much as possible. They do this as it is the most cost-effective solution for them and because the contract requires a high recycling rate. Items that are commonly recycled include: all items made from metals, green waste, untreated timber, electrical items and mattresses. If you are planning to book a hard and green waste collection we recommend you give clothing, crockery and furniture to charity stores, as reuse is better than disposal.
