Verge Side Collection

You are provided with one hard waste and two green waste verge side collections per year. It is not possible to arrange verge side collections outside your scheduled time.

Place items for collection neatly on the verge by 7am on the scheduled start date for your area (including public holidays).

Please do not:

  • Put your waste out more than one week before your scheduled start date
  • Place waste next to trees, power poles, water meters, reticulation, walls, street signs or any other object
  • Obstruct the footpath or driveway, your normal bin services or the line of sight of pedestrians and road users.

    The City does not collect from vacant lots, commercial properties, rights of way, reserves or parks.

    If you miss the collection, you can dispose of your waste at the City of South Perth Recycling Centre located on Thelma Street, Como.

    While the City endeavours to complete collection during the week advertised, there may be delays due to unforeseen circumstances.
