Changes to 2015/2016 Residential Verge Collection

29/05/2015

To optimise service for our growing City, changes have been made to the residential verge collection service in 2015/2016.

  • There are now eight areas instead of five
  • Each area has a collection period of one week
  • To reduce illegal dumping and nuisance pickers, items can only be placed on the verge on the weekend prior to the area's scheduled start date, (no longer one week)
  • There are two collections of green waste that occur before the fire and winter seasons
  • Green waste collection maximum allowance has been increased to 3 cubic metres, so residents have not lost overall volume. (General waste collection remains a 2 cubic metre limit).

The new 2015/2016 verge collection flyer will be posted to residents mid-July. Residents are urged to read it carefully so they are prepared for the changes for the general waste verge collection starting soon. Additional copies can be downloaded from the Waste Service pages from July. City officers will be closely monitoring verge collection piles.
 
From early July, scheduled dates can also be checked on NEAR ME on the City’s homepage or by contacting Customer Service on 9528 0333.
