|Green Waste Verge Collection|
We provide two green waste verge collections per year.
Please think of others and do not put anything on verges outside of collection dates. Waste left on the verge can be unsightly or hazardous.
Any waste left on the verge outside collection dates MUST BE REMOVED IMMEDIATELY or you may incur a litter infringement notice.
Remember, do NOT put out any hard waste or junk – these will be collected on a different date.
Please refer to the table below for the hard waste collection dates.
You cannot use plastic bags to put leaves or other prunings out for verge collection. If you must use plastic bags, please place these in your rubbish bin.
We will only remove tree and shrub prunings.
Material must comply with the following:
Please do not place any rubbish with the prunings, such as plastic, metal or paper. It will contaminate the green waste and the prunings will not be removed from your verge.
It would also be appreciated if you could ensure no green waste is placed on our Parks or Reserves, as Waste Services do not collect from these areas.
The City will remove up to TWO STANDARD TRAILER loads of prunings from each property.
The City does not have private arrangements with commercial contractors.
Residents are advised to ensure that commercial operators comply with the City's requirements. Failure to do so may result in costs being borne by you.
Only tree and shrub prunings that comply with the following will be removed:
Stack tree and shrub prunings neatly on the street verge with the cut ends facing the street.
Please Note: The City does not have any arrangements with commercial contractors. Where residents choose to utilise the services of commercial contractors, it is the resident’s responsibility to ensure they comply with the requirements of a green waste collection.
Note: Hard Waste will not be collected as part of a Green Waste collection. This will be collected via the Hard Waste collections only.
Your co-operation is greatly appreciated, not only by us, but also by your neighbours.
