Since Coronavirus (COVID-19) mobility restrictions took effect we have seen an increase in the amount of green and hard waste items disposed of and collected in Yarra.

To support households with surplus green waste or hard waste items, we are temporarily offering an additional service for residents to drop these items off at the Clifton Hill Depot on select weekends in May. This is an additional service separate to the recycling drop-off centre, which will continue to operate seven days of per week.

On Saturdays and Sundays between 9am to 4:45pm from 9 May and 31 May residents can drop accepted green waste or hard waste items at the Depot. 

To access this temporary drop-off service you will need to provide proof that you are a Yarra resident i.e. a rates notice or driver’s license with your home address on it.

If you have made a booking for your hard or green waste to be collected, but would like to drop it off instead, let our staff know when you visit and your booking can be cancelled. 

What can I drop off at the depot?

  • There is a limit of one single-axle trailer for both green and waste items per household.
  • Green waste must not contain palm fronds as they get tangled in the shredding equipment and damage machinery. They need to go in your red-lidded rubbish bin.
  • We can only accept hard rubbish items that can be safely disposed of. To find out which items you can drop-off at the depot, visit our page on hard rubbish collections.

What items can’t be accepted?

  • Blackberry branches
  • Bamboo
  • Noxious weeds
  • Ivy
  • Piles of wood
  • Palm fronds
  • Food scraps
  • Large tree stumps
  • Dirt

Where is the Depot located? 

The Depot is located at 168 Roseneath St, Clifton Hill. This temporary hard and green waste drop-off service will operate through the main gate, so please follow the entrance signs will be direct residents through the facility.
