Latrobe City Council’s hard waste collection service will begin in Yinnar, Yinnar South and Boolarra this December, followed by other towns in the new year.
The service is ONLY available to residents who live in declared garbage collection areas which have a kerbside Bin Collection.
To participate, place up to two cubic metres of acceptable hard waste items outside your property for collection no later than the following dates:
• Yinnar and Yinnar South – Tuesday 6 December 2022 at 8pm.
• Boolarra – Tuesday 13 December 2022 at 8pm.
Collections will take place in the week following these dates.
No bookings are required for this service.
While collections have previously taken place in November and December, this is a new service for all residents, regardless of whether you own or rent your property.
Why is it starting now and not sooner?
This is a new service to replace the booking system that was previously in place. Council introduced this service as part of the 2022/23 Budget, which came into effect in July 2022.
A tender process was then undertaken to select a contractor to deliver the service, which was awarded at Council’s November meeting.
Since then, we have been working with the contractor to plan the service to ensure it meets the needs of the community. Collection dates and locations for 2023 for other parts of the municipality will be provided in the coming weeks.
