Easter Long Weekend

City of Ballarat offices will be closed from Friday 15 April 2022 for the Good Friday public holiday through to Easter Monday on 18 April.

We will reopen Tuesday 19 April 2022.

Waste collection days are not changing over the Easter long weekend, so it will be business as usual.

Use our online tool to find your bin collection day.

If you require emergency support from City of Ballarat, please call our after hours line on 03 5320 5500.

Ballarat will have a public holiday on Melbourne Cup Day, the first Tuesday in November, until 2024. This was decided at the 28 April 2021 Council meeting.
