The City's kerbside recycling service is in place to divert valuable resources in the waste stream (including materials for re-use such as aluminium, steel cans, old newspapers, glass and plastics) from ending up in landfill.

A fortnightly service provided by Perth Waste Green Recycling on behalf of the City is available for all households, and commercial properties upon request. A calendar highlighting recycling weeks is distributed annually to all households.


The City provides each rateable residential property with a fortnightly kerbside recycling service in the form of:

  • One (1) ‘yellow lid’ 240 litre Mobile Recycle Bin (MRB) per residential household

For Multi residential dwellings or commercial properties please contact the City for entitlements.

Rateable properties requiring additional recycling bins/services over the above entitlement, will incur a fee, as per the current fees and charges. All non-rateable properties requiring a recycling service through Vincent will also incur a fee as per the current fees and charges. Please contact Waste Management Services to arrange this.

Bin Enclosures

The maximum number of MRBs allocated to a property is also determined by the size of the MGB enclosure/storage area.  All MRB requests for both multi unit complexes and commercial properties must be submitted by the Strata Manager or owner of the property. MRB requests from individual tenants will not be actioned.

In the case of there being limited verge space available at the property to put bins for collection, multiple collections may be organised instead. This is to be determined by the Director Technical Services.


Collection day for MRBs is the same day as the waste removal service, but on a fortnightly basis. To find your recycling collection day and week, view the Waste Management & Recycling Calendar.

Perth Waste Green Recycling are contracted by the City to collect all ‘yellow lid’ Mobile Recycle Bins (MRB). Perthwaste Green Recycling have now expanded their recovery process to incorporate the processing and recovery of plastics 1-7 including plastic bags on behalf of the City of Vincent.

If your MRBs are not out by 6.00am, are too heavy (over 70kgs), are over full (lid not fully closed) or have contaminating material in them, then they will not be emptied. Continuous contamination of recycling MGBs will result in removal of the service.
