Clear unwanted clutter with a free hard waste collection
Published on 19 February 2021
Baw Baw Shire residents looking to clear out any unwanted items from around the house 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 https://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 let them know.
If one collection isn’t enough, bookings for additional paid kerbside hard waste collections will open from 9 - 26 March for collections to take place between 12 - 23 April.
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 11 April, or additional costs may apply.
To make a booking, contact Council by calling 1300 229 229.
