Hard and bundled green waste collection
Bookable hard waste collection is coming soon
A bookable hard waste collection service will soon replace the previous shire-wide hard waste collection held twice a year.
- Every household in Cardinia Shire that gets their bins collected by Council will be able to book 2 free hard waste collections per calendar year. This applies to both property owners and renters.
- The service is expected to start from July 2020. You’ll be able to book online (using the hard waste booking portal on this page – coming soon) or by phone.
- This service is for green waste and household items that can’t be reused. Before booking your collection, please consider offering items in good condition to charity, or selling them online.
- More info including how to book, what items are accepted and limits on sizes will be available in the coming weeks on this web page.
- Moving to bookable hard waste will enable us to provide a more convenient and efficient service for you, reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, and reduce the impact of large amounts of hard waste being left out at the same time. It also reflects the actions in our Council Plan and Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy (2017-26)
Other ways to dispose of hard waste
- List items on a buy, swap and sell group on Facebook, such as Pakenham Buy Swap Sell.
- Give away items on sites such as eBay, Gumtree or Freecycle
- Ask local charities if they would like your item – find op shops around your area. Some charities will even pick up items for free if they are good quality, such as Diabetes Victoria
