Bulk Verge Collections

The City conducts one general household junk and two green waste bulk verge collections each year. Please note that these collections are for residential properties only.

Residents will be notified via flyer in the letterbox at least two weeks prior to the commencement of the scheduled collections. An advertisement will be placed in the local community papers and details will also be provided on the City's Facebook, Twitter and e-Newsletter (head here to subscribe!)

Verge collection tips

  • Please do not put items out for collection earlier than two weeks prior to the date your collection is due to commence as you could be fined for littering
  • All material left out for collection must be kept clear of reticulation, footpaths, street signs, poles and fences
  • In locations where your verge is very small or consisting of footpaths only, green waste is to be put out as close to commencement of collection as possible so any footpath obstruction is kept to a minimum

Waste collection is a major cost for the City of Vincent and therefore our ratepayers too. Failure to comply with the above conditions may result in the deposited material not being collected, or possibly an infringement. If we do not collect an item from your verge, we’ll let you know why via a flyer in your letterbox.

Need a mattress collected and it's not bulk verge collection time?

For a cost of $20 per mattress, we will collect and recycle your mattress. The average mattress consumes 0.75m³ of space in landfill and contains approximately 12.5kg of steel, 2kg of wood and 1.5 kg of foam. Call our Waste Minimisation team on 9273 6000 to arrange collection.

For more information please contact the City's Waste Minimisation team on 9273 6000 (ask for waste) or email mail@vincent.wa.gov.au
