Near Me


  • Waste should be placed on the verge no longer than one week before the collection date. 
  • If you see our waste team in your area before the due date for pickup, this will be for a pre-clean of the area. 
  • Do not follow your neighbour. Please check your collection dates. Crews will not return if you miss your collection.
  • Do not place your waste under trees, over sprinklers or on vacant lots and park lands.
  • Keep footpaths and driveways clear.
  • Avoid placing items on light coloured paving and artificial turf. Vehicles can leave marks and cause damage to these surfaces.
  • Please place waste at least 1 metre away from fences, walls, mail boxes, public utilities, power domes, water meters and sprinklers to avoid damage.
  • If your property is situated in a laneway, please place it in one of the visitor's car park bays at the front of your home. If you have any further questions, please contact Waste Services on 9405 5000.

"Don't leave them outside"

Make your donations count. Give your donations a chance to find new homes. Don't leave them out in the cold!

Tree lopper services

The City of Wanneroo is aware that some tree loppers have been advertising directly to residents that green waste collections are commencing in their suburb soon.

Please be aware that the City of Wanneroo does not have commercial agreements or relationships with tree loppers or any other contractors in relation to green waste collections. The City will not return for tree loppings placed on verges after the collection service has been through the area. Please ensure you are aware of the City's collection dates in your area and have all your green waste out for collection within specified guidelines.
