Collection Guidelines

Your green waste can be placed on your verge up to two weeks prior to your collection date and must be out by 6am on the Monday of your area’s collection week.

To ensure Green Waste Verge Collections run as smooth as possible, please follow the below guidelines:

Please make sure:

  • Green waste is free of contamination
  • All prunings/branches/logs have:
    • Maximum length of 1.5m (5ft)
    • Maximum diameter of 30cm (12inches)
    • Maximum height of pile1.5m (5ft)
  • Logs are stacked neatly next to prunings and branches. No mixed piles.

Please remember:

  • Do not place green waste in Hessian or plastic bags of any kind, these will not be collected – only use the City’s reusable garden bags.
  • Do not prune any street or verge trees.
  • Do not place items near or obstruct any reticulation, street signs/poles, water meters, fences, footpaths or driveways.
  • Do not place items on vacant lots, on roads, reserves, parks or any verge except your own.
  • Do not place any items on the verge that are not green waste material – no household junk, furniture, sawn or treated timber. This is littering and you could be fined.

Green waste bags

  • Green waste bags can be picked up from the City’s Administration Centre from two weeks prior to your area’s collection.
  • These bags can be used to put smaller materials such as leaves, weeds and lawn clippings out for collection. These materials can also be disposed of in your green-lid household bin throughout the year.
  • There is strictly a maximum of two bags per household – please bring proof of address. Please note that the demand for garden bags is high so they may not always be available.

Loose leaf litter, grass clippings and small prunings can be placed in your green lid bin. These materials will be collected for composting at the Neerabup Composting Facility.
