E-waste and hard waste
Hard waste is the non-degradable waste that is too large to fit into a garbage bin. It includes whitegoods, furniture, household appliances, metals, wood and old car parts and tools.
The City does not offer a hard waste collection service to residents. You can take hard waste to the Eaglehawk Eco-Centre, Heathcote Transfer Station, Goornong Transfer Station or Strathfieldsaye Transfer Station.
E-waste is old or broken electronic or electrical equipment. It can pose a significant risk to people and the environment if not dealt with appropriately. E-waste is a valuable resource that should be recycled.
The Eaglehawk Eco-Centre Recovery Yard accepts E-waste for a small charge. The E-waste accepted at Eaglehawk includes:
- Desktop and laptop computers
- Computer mice
- Computer power supplies
- Printed circuit boards
- Network and memory cards
- Disks/CD drives
Heathcote, Goornong and Strathfieldsaye Transfer Stations charge a small fee for the disposal of E-waste.
Please note: Only televisions and computer monitors are accepted at our Transfer Stations. No E-waste is accepted at Eaglehawk landfill.
Mobile phones can be recycled through the MobileMuster program.
