Wellington Shire Council conducts an annual Hard Waste Collection from residences in declared garbage collection areas which have a kerbside Bin Collection.
While hard waste collection has previously run from late August (Sale and Wurruk) to November (Loch Sport), all collections across the Shire will now be completed between 17 October and 18 November 2022.
Hard waste collections will now coincide with kerbside bin collection days. Each day will correspond with one week between 17 October and 18 November 2022.
For example, if your bin collection is normally on a Friday, your hard waste collection will begin on 17 October.
The collection date for each town is also listed below.
Tyres will no longer be permitted as a hard waste item, but can be disposed of at any transfer station or landfill site for a fee.
Please remember that hard waste is not to be put out onto nature strips more than seven days before collection and hard waste collection is only available for properties that have a kerbside collection.
If you live in Sale, bin collections are broken into five zones. Please make sure you check the correct zone for your hard waste collection date. Please use your bin collection day as a guide. You can find your bin collection day here.

When placing you Hard Waste out for collection, please ensure:
The limit for hard waste materials is 1.5m³ per household. As a guide, a standard 6x4 trailer holds approx 1m³.
Our contractors will reject items which exceed the 1.5m³ limit.
Unacceptable items will not be collected.
The items will be taped and a notice will be left which explains to the householder or property owner why the items have been rejected.
The notice will request that rejected items are removed from your nature strip within a 48 hour period. Items not removed from nature strips within the designated period may incur penalties.
