Recycling and Waste Services for our community
The City of Melton runs a weekly waste collection and an alternate recyclables and green waste (opt in) kerbside service. New residents can find out more with our online Waste Services Guide. There are also several ways to responsibly dispose of other kinds of waste.
MELTON RECYCLING FACILITY at 33 Ferris Rd, Cobblebank (formerly Melton South)... it's your one-stop service centre!
- THE RESALE SHOP
Residents are invited to drop off unwanted, re-sellable goods to the Resale Shop on site. You could save yourself money on transfer station fees. It's also a great place to find a bargain!
- TRANSFER STATION
Residents can dispose of listed accepted items for recycling or landfill (as a last resort) at the transfer station, either by using council rates vouchers or by paying the relevant gate fee.
DID YOU KNOW? All electronic goods including TVs and computers may be dropped off for free.
Household quantities of paint, batteries, CFL light globes/tubes and BBQ gas cylinders may also be dropped off for free.
Chemicals must be taken to mobile DETOX YOUR HOME events that take place around Victoria throughout each year. Refer to sustainability.vic.gov.au for details and registration.
