City of Rockingham’s verge waste collection to begin

PIC: City of Rockingham

The City of Rockingham's verge waste collection begins from Monday, July 18.

Bulk general waste collection will be carried out which includes fridges and whitegoods, mattresses, e-waste, general waste and other metals.

Following this, the City will deliver its first green waste collection from early October 2022, while the second green waste collection will start from April 2023.   

For the new verge waste collection program there will be changes to the collection areas, with several suburbs impacted.

Those affected by the area changes include parts of Baldivis, Secret Harbour, Golden Bay, Singleton, Karnup (Vista Estate) and Warnbro. 

To accommodate an increase in bulk general waste collection due to a number of new properties, changes have been made to the designated collection areas.

The City will have 10 areas for the 2022 – 2023 Verge Waste Collection Program and they comprise the following:
