The City’s Resource Recovery Centres in Drysdale and Geelong provide
important recycling and waste resource recovery services where residents can
safely recycle or dispose their waste and
remain open during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency.
However, the Victorian Government’s Stage 3 restrictions specify
that there are only four essential reasons to leave home – shopping, accessing
medical help or caring for others, exercise and work or education.
You should only access resource recovery centres for essential
disposals such as something that is affecting the health or safety of your
household or employees and requires quick disposal.
For the health and safety of all visitors, physical distancing of
at least 1.5 metres between you and other people must be adhered to.
As an alternative to attending a resource recovery centre, you can
arrange to have your bulky household items picked up from your property by
accessing the City’s hard rubbish collection service which aims to collect
items that are not accepted in or do not fit into the three-bin kerbside collection
The hard rubbish collection service is free to book with costs
covered by municipal waste charges. Find booking information here.
