Bulk and green waste collection.
The City provides additional collection services five times per year for general junk (bulk) and green waste (leaves, branches, tree / shrub prunings and grass clippings). The areas and collection dates are listed in the City’s annual waste collection calendar and the bulk and green waste map issued to residents.
Alternatively, you can look up your property on Intramaps to check for your weekly garbage and recycling collection, your next green waste, junk and white good pickup and the next depot waste drop off.
This service is for residential properties only. If you live within the Fremantle CBD area, please contact our waste management team on 08 9432 9999 for more information.
Do not follow your neighbour and check dates first. Placing waste on the verge outside your specified collection is considered illegal dumping and could attract fines of up $62 500 for individuals, and $125 000 for corporations by the Department of Environment.
