We’re changing how we deliver waste and recycling in Darebin.

The changes we’re making are part of the State Government’s reform of household recycling, including a glass recycling service.

We all want to reduce waste going to landfill.

We know many in our community would have ideas on what would make recycling easier. Now is the time to tell us what you think so we can include it in the way we do things.

We would like to get your feedback on:

  • Hard Waste
  • Kerbside waste collection frequency
  • Public place recycling bins
  • Supporting a circular economy

Speak to us face-to-face

Please check back here as more pop-up sessions will be added.
