Green waste verge collections

This page is about the City's green waste verge collections, collection tips and information on how you can obtain green waste bags.

The City of Stirling conducts a green waste verge collection for residents every nine months. This allows you to dispose of bulk garden and organic waste. Green waste can be placed on the verge up to nine days before your scheduled collection. 

Green waste can be placed on the verge up to nine days before your scheduled collection and may take up to two weeks to be collected.

Green waste placed on the verge more than nine days in advance of your collection is considered illegal dumping and will be subject to penalties. It is illegal to put green waste in parks, reserves, on vacant land or on commercial property. 

  • To ensure green waste is collected from your verge, please make sure:

    • Branches are no longer than 1.5 metres
    • Thick branches (25cm diameter and above) are cut into 30cm lengths
    • Loose and small green waste (weeds and leaves) are in a City of Stirling green waste recycling bag
    • Green waste is not in hessian, polypropylene or plastic bags
    • Green waste is free from contamination.

    Do not place green waste on or near:

    • Footpaths, driveways, overhanging onto the roadway or obstructing views from driveways
    • Artificial turf, trees/stumps or sprinklers
    • Water meters, Telstra covers, SECWA power covers, manhole covers or posts
    • Fences, walls, letterboxes and fixed objects.

    For information on which green waste is suitable for collection, please visit the Recycle WA website.
