Baw Baw Shire residents looking to clear out any unwanted household items are encouraged to book their free kerbside hard waste collection.
All households can book one free on-demand kerbside waste collection each year for up to two cubic metres of waste. This offer is available to all households in Baw Baw, whether you own or rent your property.
Bookings can be made over the phone by calling WM Waste Management Services or 1800 969 278 or online at www.hardrubbishmelbourne.com.au/baw-baw/
If you notice that your hard waste items have disappeared prior to collection, please contact WM Waste Management Services to cancel your pickup.
If you’d prefer to visit one of Council’s Transfer Stations instead, you can opt to swap the free kerbside service and drop your waste off yourself. Before you visit, please contact WM Waste Management on 1800 969 278 to make a booking.
If one collection isn’t enough, bookings for additional kerbside hard waste collections will open from 5 - 23 October for collections to take place between 9 - 20 November.
For $66.30 ($32.60 for pensioners) you can place up to two cubic metres of acceptable hard waste on your nature strip for collection. All items must be out by Sunday 8 November, or additional costs may apply.
To make a booking for the paid hard waste collection, contact Council by calling 1300 229 229.

Quotes attributable to Chief Executive Officer Mark Dupe
“If you have some things lying around at home that won’t fit into your general waste bin or can’t be rehomed, this is a great chance to move them along. After your items are collected, our waste contractor will sort through them and put them to the best possible use – whether that’s finding ways to restore them for sale, sending them on to specialist recycling facilities or in a few cases, sending it on to landfill.”
