Take your rubbish to the tip for free on Sunday 7 February - 1 February


Is your shed in a shambles? If it’s time for a clean up at your place, then we’ve got good news - the first Free Tip Day of 2016 is on this Sunday 7 February.

Mark the date in your calendar and bring your household rubbish, garden waste and mixed recyclables down to the Gregadoo Waste Management Centre (GWMC) from 7am to 4.30pm.

“Free Tip Day is a great chance to de-clutter or to tidy up now the kids are heading back to school,” Manager Waste and Stormwater Services Geoff Veneris said.

“The free days complement our normal service, which includes more materials that can be disposed of for free every day due to increased recycling capability at GWMC.”

Televisions, computers and computer equipment can be disposed of for free, not just on Free Tip Day, but every day that the Gregadoo Waste Management Centre is open, as part of the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme. This offer is available to householders and small businesses only.

“You can also dispose of polystyrene for free all year round at GWMC,” Mr Veneris said.

“Council can reprocess it on-site for reuse into a range of recycled products.”

Special wastes such as tyres, builders waste, refrigerative items, mattresses and gas bottles are not included in the free disposal day and will be charged as per normal fees and charges. Free disposal is limited to cars, vans, utes and single axle trailers only.
