On-demand skips providing a better waste collection service

On-demand skips providing a better waste collection service
17 November 2023

At the end of November the City of Canning will be transitioning to an on-demand bulk household waste collection service, in a move to provide residents with better waste services.

From the 27 November, residents will be able to book two on-demand skip bin services per financial year, at a time that is convenient for them.

This service will replace the current bulk waste verge collection service which has seen an increase of non-compliant and hazardous waste piles, illegal dumping and commercial trade waste over the last couple of years.

Community frustration with the current verge collection and delays in City pick up times prompted the City to explore more cost effective, efficient, contemporary and socially acceptable methods to enable residents to dispose of their bulk waste.

Mayor Patrick Hall said transitioning to the on-demand bulk household waste collections is a move towards providing Canning residents with better waste services.

“We listened to the community’s frustrations around the verge collections and the transition to the on-demand skip bin service will see an improved service delivery for our residents.

“We understand that this solution may not be suitable for all residents, and we will work with those who need extra assistance, or those who may not have a suitable verge to ensure we can find an alternative solution that best suits their needs.

“Residents will no longer have to wait for their scheduled date, the on-demand skip bin service will allow residents to book a bulk waste collection at a time that is convenient for them,” Mayor Hall said.

Green waste collections will continue as scheduled, with dates for the collections published in the City’s Waste Guide and available on the City’s website.

The City encourages residents to donate unwanted items that are still in good condition to one of our wonderful local charities or gift them to friends, families or neighbours.

The introduction of the on-demand skip bin service is in addition to the other on-demand services the City already provides, which include white goods and mattress pickups, as well as the reintroduction of tip passes for the Ranford Road Resource Recovery and Waste Transfer Station earlier this year.

The current bulk household waste verge collections will continue in December 2023 as scheduled, however from 1 January the City will no longer be collecting bulk household waste via the scheduled collections.
