Clothing drop off hubs

E-waste and clothing can be recycled and reused in many ways but not through kerbside bins. E-waste and clothing drop off hubs can be found at:

  • Manor Lakes Community Learning Centre
  • Wyndham Park community Centre
  • Arndell Park Community Centre

At each of these locations you will find one e-waste container and two clothing containers.

E-waste containers: accept all small electrical items that have a cord, plug or batteries, including laptops and kitchen appliances, but must be under 50cm high and 60cm wide in order to fit in the tray. Large items are not accepted but can be taken to the Wyndham Refuse Disposal Facility (municipal tip) for recycling or picked up via a hard waste recycling collection.

Clothing containers: accept clothing, toys, handbags, shoes, belts, hats, scarves, and accessories.

If you are using the drop-off hubs please ensure that items are placed within the containers provided and not dumped illegally. The containers are equipped with sensors to manage collection pick-ups.

Alternatively, there are a range of other ways to give those unwanted items new life, via charities and other donation programs.

Compost bins and Worm farms

Compost revolution

Did you know on average half our household garbage is food waste? You can turn food scraps into nutrient rich compost for your garden by using a worm farm or compost bin at home.

Sign up to Wyndham’s Halving Household Waste program to be eligible for up to 50% off a compost bin or worm farm. To join the program visit Worm Lovers and it’s as simple as placing an online order and being a Wyndham resident to be eligible.

Worm Farms and Compost bins provide an easy way to reduce waste sent to landfill, cutting down on greenhouse gases and returning nutrients back into the soil.

Take your e-waste to a better place

To help protect our environment and recover more precious resources, the Victorian Government is banning all e-waste from going to landfill as of 1 July 2019. That means, e-waste can’t go in any bin.

E-waste (electronic waste) is any item with a plug, battery or power cord that is no longer in working condition. Including small appliances such as toasters and coffee machines, electric tools like drills and sewing machines and IT equipment such as computers and laptops.

Household Chemicals - Detox Your Home

Detox your home

Detox your Home – Household Chemical Collection Program

Do you need to safely dispose of unwanted, highly toxic household chemicals? Household chemicals can be dangerous – they can harm your family and your pets, add extra fuel to a house fire, release toxic fumes and pollute the environment for future generations.

Detox your Home is a safe, free and easy-to-use service to dispose of unwanted, highly toxic household chemicals without harming your health or the environment.

The collected items are recovered and diverted from landfill.

There are up to 33 Detox your Home events held across Victoria each year to ensure reasonable access for all Victorian householders. The program is administered by Sustainability Victoria in partnership with local councils and is funded by the Victorian landfill levy.

Visit the Detox your Home website for a complete list of upcoming events and accepted products.

Detox your Home. Do the right thing for your loved ones and your environment. It’s easy and it’s free.

Permanent drop-off sites for paint and other products

Household paint, batteries, and fluorescent lights – which are less toxic than household chemicals (but also a more common waste item) – can be disposed of throughout the year at a permanent drop-off site.

Detox your Home, on the other hand, is a free service designed specifically to collect unwanted, highly toxic household chemicals.

There is a nearby permanent drop-off site at: Wyndham Transfer Station 470 Wests Road Werribee

For more information and a full list of permanent drop-off sites visit Sustainability Victoria's website https://www.sustainability.vic.gov.au/detoxyourhome
