Green Waste Verge Collection

We provide two green waste verge collections per year.

Material for collection is to be placed neatly on the street verge by 6am on the commencement date. Please ensure all items do not cause a visual obstruction for traffic.

Material is NOT to be placed out more than seven days for green waste prior to the collection date. A person who places material on the verge prior to the commencement date may incur a fine under the Litter Act.

Any waste left on the verge outside collection dates MUST BE REMOVED IMMEDIATELY or you may incur a litter infringement notice.

Only tree and shrub prunings that comply with the following will be removed:

·         Individual green waste should not exceed 1.5m in length nor weigh more than 16kg.

·         Green waste to be less than 150mm in diameter.

Stack green waste neatly on the street verge with the cut ends facing the street.

The following will NOT be removed:

·         Lawn and weed sods, stumps or tree roots.

·         Oversized material (see limits above).

·         Bags, boxes or bales of green waste.

Please note: The City does not have any arrangements with commercial contractors. Where residents choose to utilise the services of commercial contractors, it is the resident’s responsibility to ensure they comply with the requirements of a green waste collection.

Note: Hard Waste will not be collected as part of a Green Waste collection. This will be collected via the Hard Waste collections only.
