Latrobe City Council’s twice-yearly booked hard waste collection will go ahead as planned, starting Monday 7 December. The contractor responsible for this service has confirmed that all appropriate social distancing measures shall be adhered to in accordance with current government directives to slow the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
Latrobe City residents will be able to place up to two cubic metres of household hard waste from their property on their nature strip for collection. All residents must book via the Latrobe City Contact Centre (1300 367 700) or via the Latrobe City Facebook page using the hard waste coupons distributed through the property rates notices.
Householders who place waste on their nature strip without booking will not have their waste collected and may face fines for illegal dumping. Bookings must be completed by close of business, 20 November.
"This booked hard waste collection comes at an ideal time just before Christmas and after many people have been at home during lockdown and tidying their properties," Latrobe City Council Chief Executive Officer Steven Piasente said.
Residents of Latrobe City receive coupons with their rates notices that permit up to a two cubic metre pile of acceptable items to be collected from their nature strip without any contact with the collection crew. Acceptable items include couches, mattresses, tables, chairs, exercise equipment, bedside tables, tall boys, rugs, mats, cork tiles, TV cabinets, coffee tables (glass removed), dining tables, outdoor furniture, computer desks, curtains, blinds and fittings, luggage, toys, floating floors, vinyl, carpets and underlay (maximum 30cm diameter x 1.5m long), cane furniture and lamps.
Only acceptable items will be collected. A full list of non-acceptable items is available at www.latrobe.vic.gov.au/waste. Transfer stations continue to operate as per normal operating hours.
Latrobe City Transfer Stations remain open during this COVID-19 outbreak for those without coupons or who have more than two cubic metres of acceptable items. Operating hours can also be found at www.latrobe.vic.gov.au/waste
