TV screens at tip

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
  • Monitors
  • Printers
  • Scanners
  • Keyboards
  • Computer power supplies
  • Printed circuit boards
  • Motherboards
  • Network and memory cards
  • Disks/CD drives
  • Televisions

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.
