Drive Through Recycling Day returns to Brimbank

Do you have unwanted items that are too big or too good to throw out?

Clean out your home, load up the car or trailer and take unwanted items to the ‘Pop-Up Drive Through and Recycling Day’ at Victoria University in St Albans, on Saturday 20 March 2021 from 8am-1pm.

Brimbank residents can safely and conveniently drop-off their unwanted household items, for reuse or recycling at the ‘Pop-Up Drive Through Recycling Day’ – all at no charge.

Brimbank Mayor, Cr Ranka Rasic, urged people to take advantage of this chance to declutter their homes, and dispose of unwanted items responsibly and stop them going to landfill.

“It’s easy and no charge for residents to participate in the Pop-Up event. You don’t even need to get out of the car. On the day, simply load up the car or trailer and arrive at the location, we’ll take care of the rest.

“We are partnering with local charity organisations, including the West Welcome Wagon to donate and reuse unwanted household items, including mattresses, whitegoods, electronic items and bicycles.

“So pack up your car or trailer and let’s get recycling, and help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill,” Cr Rasic said.

To keep the event COVID safe you will be required to bring identification (driver’s licence or rate notice) and register onsite. You will also need to wear a face mask and remain in your vehicle at all times.

Residents can drop-off TVs, computers, electronic appliances, whitegoods, furniture (in good condition), mattresses, bicycles (in good condition), homewares, clothes and linen. Residents cannot bring asbestos, construction waste, chemicals, biological waste, sharps, broken monitors, fluorescent tubes and smoke detectors.

There is a maximum of 8 items per household. Only cars, small vans or cars with trailers will be able to drop-off items, no trucks or commercial quantities allowed.

Bookings are preferred. To register visit: popuprecyclingbrimbank.eventbrite.com.au or contact Council on 9249 4000.
