Verge Collections Guidelines

Overview

View your suburb's next collection week

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?
