Verge Collections Guidelines

Overview

Looking for your next collection date? Visit our Bin and Verge Collection Days page and use your property address to reveal your dates.  

One hard waste and two green waste collections are provided each year, for residential properties receiving a weekly waste service.

How should I place my waste on the verge?

  • Place your waste on your verge before Monday 6:00am but no earlier than seven days prior to the scheduled start date for your area
  • Allow up to seven days for collection
  • Don't obstruct the footpath, your normal bin service or the line of sight of pedestrians, cyclists and cars
  • Don't place your waste next to structures or obstructions such as letter boxes, walls, power poles or sprinklers
  • Don't place your waste on vacant properties or public reserves

What happens if I don't follow these guidelines?

Litter infringements may be issued for non-compliance with collection guidelines or if your waste is placed on your verge more than seven days prior to the scheduled start date for your area.

Don't have a verge or is your verge too small to comply?
