Green waste collection

Improvements to green waste collection service

From Monday 4 September, the city will implement a new and improved green waste collection service. You will no longer need to notify the city to have your green waste removed. Simply place your green waste on the verge on the same day as your general waste collection and the city will remove it. To ensure an efficient green waste collection service, the city requires a minimum of four and a maximum of ten City of Subiaco bags to be presented on the verge for collection on any waste day.

The city is currently taking greens collection requests until Monday 28 August and will commence the new service on Monday 4 September. Until then you can book a greens collection by completing the online form below or leave your details on the 24-hour, seven days a week telephone answering service. Call 9387 0999 and record your address, daytime contact number and information regarding the location of your green waste collection.

Please note: on-demand green waste collection is for residents only, and is not a bulk waste collection. Size requirements must be adhered to for the green waste to be removed. If the pile is larger than the size specifications outlined below, it will not be removed. Split oversized piles will not be removed. Greens from residential complexes and multi-unit developments are subject to the same size requirements.  

This service is for residential prunings only. Green waste generated by commercial tree loppers/contractors will not be removed by the city, and must be removed by the contractor. 

Rubbish tip passes

Rubbish tip passes are available from the Administration Centre for disposal at Brockwaste Transfer Station. Tip passes are $42 each, with a maximum of two per property each year. Passes can be used for green waste or other general items.

How can I assist with collection?
