Clear the clutter before the festive season
Hume residents are being encouraged to clear the clutter before Christmas, with a free hard rubbish recycling day to be held on Saturday 3 December.
Hume Mayor Councillor Drew Jessop said Council would host the free service at Hume Resource Recovery Centres in Sunbury and Campbellfield from 8am until 4pm on the day.
“This is a great opportunity for residents to clear their homes of hard rubbish, such as mattresses and washing machines, for free and just before the holiday season starts,” Hume Mayor Councillor Drew Jessop said.
“Simply bring the hard rubbish to either of our resource recovery centres in Campbellfield or Sunbury on the day, along with proof of Hume residency, such as a rates notice or drivers licence, and we’ll look after it from there.
“Our Council officers will accept electronic goods, mattresses, whitegoods; many of which will be recycled.
The following items will be accepted for FREE at Council’s Resource Recovery Centres on Saturday 3 December:
- Electronic goods, such as televisions, computers and DVD players
- Whitegoods, such as fridges and washing machines.
“It’s completely free for residents to dispose of up to 15 goods, and the beginning of summer is a great incentive to give the house a proper clean up,” Cr Jessop said.
“This is just one of the free services Hume offers to help people to clear away unwanted goods from their property during the year.
Every Hume household is entitled to one free home collection of up to three cubic metres of hard waste.
Additionally residents are also entitled to one of the following free additional options:
- Another home collection of up to 3 cubic metres of hard rubbish; or
- Two visits to a Hume City Council waste facility to dispose of a load of rubbish in either a single-axle trailer, car boot, van, station wagon, 4WD or utility tray (ute); or
- One visit to a Hume City Council waste facility to dispose of a load of rubbish in a double axle (tandem axle) trailer.
