Hard Rubbish Collection

The City of Mitcham provides one free pre-booked hard rubbish collection service for each household per financial year.

Residents wanting a hard rubbish collection can contact East Waste to pre-book their collection:

Mattress and ensemble bases must be BOOKED SEPARATELY for recycling.

Click here to book a mattress or ensemble collection.

Items must be placed on kerbside no earlier than 24 hours prior, and no later than 6:00am of the booked collection date. Residents will be asked to remove their waste from the kerbside if placed out earlier than permitted. Pickup will be within four weeks of booking the service.

A maximum of two cubic metres will be collected from each household. To calculate cubic metres, multiply length x width x height. For example: 2m x 1m x 1m = 2 cubic metres.

The hard waste brochure lists items accepted for collection.

All items can be placed on the kerbside the day before your collection. Your hard waste will be collected after 6:00am on your collection day.

Note that East Waste no longer sends out stickers to identify your hard rubbish items but instead informs Council of all approved bookings.

Please ensure the hard waste outside your property is placed and maintained safely until collected - even if it is moved by other people.

If you live in the Higher Fire Risk Area and your collection day coincides with an Extreme or Catastrophic fire danger rating day, your collection will be postponed until the next appropriate day.

Remember - illegal dumping is an offence and an expiation notice may be issued under the Local Nuisance and Litter Control Act should materials be placed out for collection too early.
