Hard Rubbish Collection

We currently provide one free annual hard waste collection per Frankston City household each financial year.

Residents can also book additional paid hard waste collections at any time of year.

Free annual hard waste collection

In early 2018, Council commenced a tender process to secure a kerbside hard waste and bundled green waste collection service for the 2018–2019 financial year.

Council has been successful in securing a contractor, however due to scheduling conflicts, the annual city-wide collection service will not commence until later in the current financial year – most likely April 2019.

Exact collection dates are currently being finalised, and residents will receive notification in their letterbox approximately two weeks prior to their collection date.

Council thanks the community for their understanding and realises this change may inconvenience some residents.

Council looks forward to delivering the service later in the financial year.

Residents are reminded that they should only put hard waste out when the annual collection is taking place, or if an ‘at call’ service has been booked and paid for.

Outside of these circumstances it is considered illegal dumping and Council will take the necessary actions, including prosecution or issuing fines.

Further information, including alternative disposal options can be found on our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Residents can book an additional paid hard waste collection of 2 cubic metres at any time of year.
