Green waste tipping and mulch

Green waste tipping and mulch

If you have additional green waste or missed the City’s scheduled verge collections there is another way to recycle your green waste. Tipping your green waste at the Wangara Greens Recycling Facility for free with the City issued tipping vouchers

Green waste tipping

The City issues residents with four green waste Tipping vouchers per year, for use at the Wangara Greens Recycling Centre. These can be found in the Waste Guide 2021/22 which was delivered to all households in July. Resident can dispose of up to 500kgs of green waste per tipping voucher.

These vouchers are valid for a financial year and can only be used on weekends and public holidays at the Wangara Greens Recycling Centre. Entry fees will apply without a valid voucher.

As the green waste is shredded and turned into mulch it is extremely important to make sure there are no other items mixed into the green waste such as, sand, treated timber, building rubble or concrete.

PLEASE NOTE: Any commercial services using residential vouchers for greens tipping will need a letter from the resident whose property the greens are from when presenting the vouchers for use at Wangara Greens Recycling.

Free mulch

The greens processed at the Wangara greens recycling facility is shredded and turned into mulch. This mulch is available for use on your gardens to keep the moisture in the soil from evaporating and adds organic matter to the soil.

Pick up your free mulch, using your mulch vouchers (found in your waste guide), from Wangara Greens Recycling Facility. Mulch can be collected in trailers, or utes, which must be covered by tarpaulins and secured with rope.

Fees apply without a valid tipping or mulch voucher.

The Wangara Greens Recycling Centre is owned and run by the City of Wanneroo. Please visit the City of Wanneroo website for opening times and COVID restrictions.
