Do you have hard waste lying around your house that can’t be donated or recycled?
Kaduna Park residents can now book a hard waste collection through Cardinia Shire.
The shire’s new bookable hard waste collection started on 1 July. It replaces the previous twice yearly shire-wide collection.
Households can now book two free hard waste collections per calendar year for up to two cubic metres (2m x 1m x 1m) of hard waste to be collected at a time convenient to them.
Households will also have the option to book up to two extra paid collections at a cost of $100 per booking for up to two cubic metres of hard waste per collection.
The service has been expanded to include car tyres, along with all items previously accepted in the former shire-wide collection service.
Hard waste collection bookings can be made online at www.cardinia.vic.gov.au/hardwaste or by calling Customer Service on 1300 787 624.
To prepare for a collection, residents should check the list of acceptable items and follow the instructions for how and when to place unwanted items out for collection.
This information is available online at www.cardinia.vic.gov.au/hardwaste Council encourages residents to follow the waste hierarchy by considering how their unwanted items can first be reused, repaired, recycled, sold or donated; or recovered before being disposed of.
For items that are in good, usable condition, residents can consider donating their items (checking with donation organisations first), giving to a friend or family member who needs it, or selling the items second hand.
