Bulk green waste

Green waste verge collection

The bulk green waste verge collection service is a scheduled collection and is for garden waste only. The collection service runs once per suburb, per financial year. To check the collection dates for your next green waste verge collection use the search tool below.

Please note collections for your area commence on the Monday and are completed by Friday. 

 

What you can put out on your verge for collection:

  • Garden prunings
  • Tree loppings (less than 1.5m in length)
  • Palm leaves
  • Tree limbs, branches, small logs (1.5m in length).

Note: Branches more than 150mm in diameter must be cut into 300mm lengths.

What you cannot put out for collection:

  • Building rubble
  • Treated timber/pine
  • Bagged waste
  • Pallets
  • Railways sleepers
  • Processed wood
  • Sand or soil.

Important to remember:

Collections commence on Mondays and are completed by the Friday of the same week. 

All bulk green waste must be placed loose on the verge with no use of boxes, bags or containers. All non-green waste items will be considered as littering. Bulk green waste is shredded and mulched, therefore it cannot be contaminated with any other waste.

Do not place bulk green waste on artificial turf, stenciled paving or near water meters or power domes. Only place green waste on your verge.

If you find you only have a very small amount of green waste or loose leaves, please place it into your lime green lid greens waste bin.

If you missed your bulk verge greens waste collection or can’t wait for your scheduled collection, residents can drop off their garden waste at the Wangara Greens Recycling Centre on weekends and public holidays. A valid City of Joondalup tipping voucher must be presented or charges will apply. The tipping voucher is on the back page of the Waste Guide sent to ratepayers.

Green waste tipping and mulch

Self haul greens  

The City issues residents with four green waste tipping vouchers (found at the back of your Waste Guide). These can be used at the Wangara Greens Recycling Centre. Residents can dispose of up to 500kgs of clean green waste using their tipping vouchers.

These vouchers are valid for the 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.

Free mulch

The greens processed at the Wangara Greens Recycling Facility is 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 (available to download online) from Wangara Greens Recycling Facility. Mulch can be collected in trailers, or utes, all trailers and utes must be covered by tarpaulins and secured with rope when collecting mulch.

For further information regarding bulk green waste and green waste collections, please refer to the Waste Guide below.

Bulk hard waste collection service

The on-request Bulk Hard Waste Collection service assists residents in disposing of or recycling their unwanted/broken larger household items. The same items that were picked up from the verge can go into the skip, only now they are recycled.

Bulk hard waste is a service provided by the City, as part of the annual waste charge.

The Bulk Hard Waste Collection includes the following three services, per household, per financial year including:

  • One collection of up to four white goods
  • One collection of up to six mattresses
  • One three cubic metre skip bin, or one lounge suite collection.

The City provides one skip bin per household, per financial year per refuse charge. Residents who wish to have additional services can book additional skip bin for a reduced rate via the City’s website, additional white good and mattress collections can be booked for an additional fee. If you pay for more than one waste charge at your property then you are entitled to more than one suite of bulk hard waste services.

Quotas cannot be accumulated for use in the following years. New allowances commence in line with the new financial year (1 July).

If you live in a unit or property without a verge you will still have access to the Bulk Hard Waste Collection Service. The collection contractor will visit your address and decide the best option for the service to be undertaken. You may need to sign a consent form to agree to place the skip in a suitable location.

Assistance

The on-request service allows residents to book skip bins for a time when friends, family and neighbours are able to assist, if required. However, the City understands that there may be exceptional circumstances where residents have a genuine need for additional assistance. If this situation occurs you are encouraged to speak with the City’s Waste team to discuss other options available.

Booking information

You will be asked to register a login in the booking information portal, and will have to enter your details prior to making a booking.  This will give you access to your annual entitlements and booking information for this financial year. Should you experience any difficulties registering please call Cleanaway on 9449 3363.

Cleanaway Booking Forms

In peak booking times such as school holidays, end of financial year and Easter, wait times for skip bins may be up to 10 working days for weekday skips and 15 working days for weekend skips, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

The bulk service quotas cannot be accumulated for use in the following year. To ensure you receive your bulk hard waste allocation in the 2021/22 financial year bookings must be made by Thursday 30 June 2022 and used by Friday 29 July 2022. Services booked after Thursday 30 June 2022 will come out of the 2022/23 bulk hard waste allowances.

Please note: Due to logistical reasons skips may contain waste when delivered to your property (may be full upon arrival). Please be assured that the waste will be emptied on the same day as delivery.

Mattress and White goods collection details

All mattress and white goods must be out on the verge by 7.00am for collection. The collection day coincides with your bin day.

Bulk hard waste skip bin disposal items

The same items that were able to be put out on the verge for the bulk hard waste collection can now be put into the skip bin, except for white goods and mattresses, as there are separate collections for these items. Bulk hard waste skip bin items include:

  • Household furniture – cupboards, draws, cabinets, tables, chairs etc
  • Bed frames/headboards
  • Floor coverings (carpets/underlay)
  • Oversized cardboard packaging
  • Wheel barrows (tyres removed)
  • Old bicycles, exercise equipment etc.
  • Garden Pots
  • Broken toys (batteries removed).

For health and safety reasons waste must not be filled above the top rail.

E-waste and household hazardous waste can be dropped off seven days a week, free of charge at Tamala Park and the Recycling Centre Balcatta.

Tips for successful use of skips

  • The skip will be clearly marked with a maximum fill line. For health and safety reasons waste must not be filled above the top rail
  • Have your waste ready (within your property line) to go into the skip for quick and easy disposal
  • Book the skip for when your friends and family can help
  • Check out the different skip type two, four, or six days, then book one that suits your length of time needs
  • If you have a skip and lounge suite to dispose of, consider using the lounge removal as your bulk skip allocation then purchase a skip for your loose bulk waste under City’s special negotiated rate dollar
  • Book your bulk waste collection in advance so you don’t miss out on the dates you want
  • In the event a skip is overfilled, a card will be left requesting the removal of excess items within 24 hours, so that the skip can be safely removed and emptied.
