Dump For Free Month Initiative To Include March And October In 2024

Friday, 09 Feb 2024

Dump For Free Month Initiative To Include March And October In 2024 In response to the overwhelming success of the new Dump for Free Month initiative trialled last year, Griffith City Council is pleased to announce the expansion of the program to include the months of March and October in 2024.
Residents can dispose of general domestic waste, including garden debris and mixed recyclables, free of charge during these designated months.
Griffith Mayor, Councillor Doug Curran, said he was happy to announce the expansion of Dump for Free. “We are excited to expand it and provide our community with more opportunities to responsibly dispose of their waste,” Councillor Curran said.
“The feedback we received was really positive. Over 4,300 residents utilised the service last October and appreciated being able to plan what weekend over the month they could take their rubbish out.”     
Throughout March, each household is entitled to dispose of up to two standard loads, with a maximum of four car tyres per load. It is important to note that commercial or agricultural tyres will not be accepted. A standard load is defined as equivalent to a car and trailer combination or a single car or ute load. It is crucial to adhere to these guidelines for a smooth and efficient disposal process.
Residents are reminded that hazardous materials such as asbestos will not be accepted during the Dump for Free event. Council encourages responsible waste disposal and urges residents to utilise the free Community Recycling Centre (CRC) located at the Tharbogang Waste Management Facility. The CRC serves as a permanent drop-off location for common household problem wastes that cannot be collected through Council kerbside waste and recycling collection services. Accepted items at the CRC include paint, gas bottles, fire extinguishers, motor oils, other oils, car and household batteries, smoke detectors, and fluorescent globes/tubes.
The Tharbogang Waste Management Centre will be open from 8am to 5pm, seven days a week. Additionally, the Yenda Centre will be open from 1pm to 5pm on Sundays.
Dump for Free dates:
  • March Dump for Free will run from Friday March 1 – Sunday 31 March 2024.
  • October Dump for Free will be from Monday 30 September – Friday 1 November 2024.
