Visit our resource recovery centres (tips)

Phone system down
The phone lines at the Bolinda Road Resource Recovery Centre are currently experiencing technical issues. Please call the Sunbury RRC on 9744 2974 while the issue is being resolved.

Hume City Council manages two Resource Recovery Centres located in Sunbury and Campbellfield.

Before you visit

Step 1.Check our opening hours

Our Resource Recovery Centres (tips) in Campbellfield and Sunbury are open 8am until 4pm, Monday to Sunday. Open hours are subject to change without notice on windy days. We're closed on ANZAC Day, Good Friday, Christmas Day, New Year's Day and Total Fire Ban Days.

Step 2.Grab your licence or rates notice

For residential pricing, you must show your driver's licence with proof of Hume address. Homeowners and tenants are entitled to two free tip passes every year. You just need to bring a copy of your latest rates notice – your tip pass is the QR code on the back. A hard copy is best, but we can scan a digital version as long as the tip pass QR code is visible. If you're a tenant, the fastest way to get your tip pass is to visit a Customer Service Centre. You can also apply online.

If you forget your tip pass, you will not be able to get a refund later.

Tip passes are non-transferrable, and not for commercial use.

Step 3.Load your vehicle

Before you leave home, make sure your load is covered and safely secured. No tipping trailers are permitted. All trailers must be unloaded by hand, and you must stay in your vehicle unless unloading. Once you arrive, you'll need to follow all directions and signage from on-site staff. 

Step 4.Leave your cash at home

Payment is by EFTPOS only. We are not currently accepting any cash transactions.

Every year, between 1 October and 30 September, all households in Hume (both homeowners and renters) are entitled to a number of free hard waste services. This includes two passes to drop off household waste at our Resource Recovery Centres (tip passes).

Up to 2m3 of household waste can be dropped off with each pass. Passes can be used for:

  • Two visits per year to drop off up to 2m3 of waste, or
  • One visit per year to drop off up to 4m3 of waste.

Tip passes are for resident use only and are not transferable. Commercial use is not permitted.

Check your entitlements

If you’re not sure if you have used up your tip pass entitlements for the year, you can check here:

Am I eligible for a tip pass?

Using your tip pass

Your tip pass is the QR code on the back of your rates notice. If you are renting or don't have your rates notice, contact us for a copy of your pass.

To use your pass, bring your rates notice or instalment reminder notice with you to show at the gatehouse. Digital copies will only be accepted if the QR code is clearly visible.

Refunds will not be given for customers who do not present their tip pass at the time of their visit.

How much waste can I drop off for free?

Up to 2m3 of household waste can be dropped off with each pass. You can use your passes separately, or together for one big load (up to 4m3).

A maximum of 4 mattresses and 10 tyres will be accepted each year as part of your free passes. Additional items will be charged at standard rates. See the fees and charges section for more information.
