Bulk Verge Collections - Greenwaste and Junk

During August and September the Shire provides each house that currently has a kerbside bin service with a bulk verge collection for both greenwaste and hard waste/ junk.

For the most current dates please refer to the following:

Mundaring Waste & Recycling Guide

Shire of Mundaring Bulk Verge Collection page

You must not place your waste on the verge until a maximum of two weeks prior to the collection date for your suburb. 

For information on what waste types can be placed on the verge for collection, how much waste you can place on the verge, items that cannot be placed on the verge and how to separate your waste for collection, please view the 'Bulk Verge Collections' page of the current Waste and Recycling Guide here.

For more information please contact the Mundaring Shire on 9290 6717 or visit www.mundaring.wa.gov.au.

Do not place material on the verge for collection more than two weeks prior to the commencement date given below.

Notification flyers are no longer sent out to your address two weekends before pick-up. Instead the Shire will be notifying residents using variable message boards in prominent locations, adverts printed in local newspapers, the Waste and Recycling Guide included with your rates notice and the Mundaring Shire's website.
