General waste verge collection

A bulk general waste verge collection service is scheduled annually.

A maximum of two cubic metres applies per residential property.

To ensure maximum recycling, please place verge items into four neat piles (maximum of two cubic metres in total):

  1. fridges and white goods
  2. metals
  3. mattresses
  4. other junk.

Green waste verge collection

Two green waste verge collections are scheduled per financial year; one prior to summer and one prior to winter so that properties can be prepared for the fire and storm seasons.

A maximum of three cubic metres per residential property, and per green waste verge collection will be collected.

The green waste verge collection is for:

  • tree and shrub prunings to a maximum of 1.5 metres in length and 350 mm in diameter.

Please do not place green waste on tarps, or in boxes or bags, and do not tie the prunings with string. Artificial turf is also not accepted during the green waste verge collection.

For dates and guidelines, see the Verge Collection Flyer below. 

Non-conforming verge collection

Verge waste will not be collected if it does not meet our regulations for verge collections so please ensure you follow the guidelines in the Verge Waste Collection Flyer. Officers or the City’s contractor may leave notification for why verge waste was not collected.

It is the responsibility of the resident or property owner to make alternative arrangements for the disposal of their rubbish if the regulations are not met. Tip passes can be used to drop items to the Millar Road Landfill Facility, Baldivis. All metal objects and other items may be accepted at the Millar Road Recycling Facility free of charge.
