Recycling points and landfills
The City of Merri-bek does not have a landfill site (rubbish tip or dump). There is a privately owned transfer station in Brunswick East and recycling points in nearby municipalities.
Recycling points, also known as resource recovery centres or transfer stations, are places where you can drop off a range of items, including concrete and timber waste, metal, batteries and chemicals, furniture and hard rubbish.
Items are recycled where possible, however some items go to landfill. Call the recycling point to confirm which items they accept, how items are disposed of, and any charges that may apply. Some recyclable items may be accepted free of charge.
Our A to Z guide to waste and recycling also has suggestions for other ways of disposing of items to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.
You can also use the Council hard waste collection each year for a range of items.
