(6/2/17) We’re reviewing the way we manage Freo’s verges

We understand how important waste services are to our community and also how important it is to have safe, clean and attractive verges in Freo.

With this in mind, we’re reviewing the way we manage residential verges. This includes looking at how bulk and green waste is collected and recycled, our verge maintenance program (including mowing) and the provision of mulch.

This financial year’s bulk waste (junk and whitegoods) verge collection took place in September 2016. A second collection is not scheduled for the remainder of the 2016-17 financial year.

If you have junk and whitegoods you want to remove from your property, please take it to the City’s operation centre (Knutsford Street) on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 February, where free bulk waste bins will be available (jump to the bulk waste bin info).

If any of your waste can be recycled, you can also bring it to the City’s recycling centre which is open every weekend between 8.00 am-4.00 pm.

The next green waste verge collection is scheduled for April 2016.

The dates for the 2017-18 financial year waste collection will be distributed in the Resource Recovery calendar in June 2017.
