Clarification on the Three Bin System


Recent media stories about a three bin trial in the Melville area have caused some confusion for City residents.

The City of Rockingham has a three bin system that is collected differently to that of Melville.
To clarify:

  • The City’s green waste bin is for garden waste only, not for food scraps.
  • The red lidded waste bin is collected weekly.
  • The green waste bin (green lid) and the recycling bin (yellow lid) are collected on alternative fortnights. Check your properties dates on Near Me.

Local government areas have different waste and recycling facilities so recycling rules can vary greatly. Never rely on information heard on third party pages, always seek information direct from the City.
