Free Tip Day on this Saturday 14 May - 10 May 2016

Give your place a tidy up before winter arrives at the next Free Tip Day on Saturday 14 May.

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 opportunity to get rid of those autumn leaves or clean out your shed or garage,” Acting Manager Waste and Stormwater Services Ron Cheney said.

“The Free Tip 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 Cheney 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.

For more information and a full list of fees and charges, visit Council’s website or phone 1300 292 442.
