The new Bulk Green Waste collection schedule is now for clean, green garden waste only. This includes tree loppings and garden prunings. All green waste must be placed loose on the verge with no use of boxes, bags or containers. Green waste must be trimmed in accordance with the following guidelines:
- Side branches must be trimmed off and be no longer than 1.5m in length
- Branches more than 150mm in diameter must be cut into 300mm lengths.
The material will be shredded and mulched. This mulch is used on the City's parks and gardens. Residents can visit Wangara Recycling Centre on weekends and when stocks are available can collect a supply of free mulch, using their City of Joondalup tipping vouchers.
You can take your green waste to the green recycling facility at 70 Motivation Drive Wangara.
The facility is open to the public from 8.00am - 4.45pm on weekends only and public holidays (except Good Friday, Christmas Day and New Years Day).
Four free entry vouchers for loads up to 500kg are sent to residents with their annual rates notice. If you do not have a voucher, a charge will apply according to the size of the load.
Loads that contain contaminated material will not be accepted.
For further information please contact the City on 9400 4255.
Tree Lopper Services
The City of Joondalup is aware that some tree loppers have been advertising directly to residents that green waste collections are commencing in their suburb soon. Please be aware that the City of Joondalup does not have commercial agreements or relationships with tree loppers or any other contractor in relation to green waste collections. Residents should check with the City for accurate collection dates before placing material on their verge for collection.
