(15/4/2019) Green waste verge collection after Easter

The Easter holidays will be the perfect time for City of Fremantle residents to tidy up their gardens, with the next green waste verge collection starting at the end of the month.

The green waste pick-up for residents in Area A - which includes all properties north of South Street - will start from April 29.

Residents in Area B – all properties south of South Street – will have their green waste collected from May 6.

The City will collect a maximum of two trailer loads or two cubic metres of green waste from each property, including tree trunks, branches and prunings up to 1.5 metres in length and 30 centimetres in diameter.

General rubbish, bags and boxes of leaves or grass clippings, dug out lawn, weeds and roots, or sand and soil won’t be collected.

Green waste can be placed on the verge up to two days before the collection date.

Residents are asked to place their waste on the verge as neatly as possible, away from walls, fences, power poles and trees and ensuring it doesn’t obstruct footpaths, driveways and sprinklers.

If you miss the verge collection, clean green waste can be dropped off all year round at the City of Fremantle Recycling Centre on Montreal Street.

All of the green waste collected will be processed into mulch, which can be collected from the Recycling Centre by Fremantle residents to put back on their gardens.
