Residential bin collections

This page provides information about residential bin collections, how to request residential bins, reporting missed bins and how you can upgrade your residential waste service.

Types of bins

The City of Stirling operates a three-bin system where households have access to three different bins:

  • A Red lid bin for general waste
  • A Yellow lid bin for recycling materials
  • A Lime green bin for garden organics (grass cuttings, weeds, small pruning items).

Red lid general waste bins are collected weekly. Yellow lid recycling and lime green lid garden organics bins are collected fortnightly on alternate weeks.

    and

    • The option for a 240 litre green waste bin service by application.

    Multi-unit complexes

    If you live in a multi-unit complex of 6 or more units, a request for residential bins must be made by your strata manager.

    If you are a Homeswest tenant, please arrange for a request to be submitted, in writing, by the Department of Housing to stirling@stirling.wa.gov.au.

    Did you know?

    When our three bin system was rolled out in July 2015, green waste bins were only delivered to properties of 400sqm or more. If you do not have a green waste bin and wish to apply for one, please phone our Customer Contact Centre. 

  • If your bin isn’t emptied as scheduled, please phone our Customer Contact Centre within 24 hours. Please note, we can only lodge a request for a missed bin after 4:00pm on the day of your scheduled collection. This ensures that we allow enough time for our drivers to complete their collections.

    Missed bins that are reported outside of the 24-hour time-frame will incur a late collection fee of $75. Missed service fee of $75 will apply if bins were not presented to the verge by 6:00am on their scheduled collection day.

    Top tip

    Our waste truck drivers may take a different route each week during their collections, so please make sure your bin is placed on the verge before 6am on your collection.

  • If your current bin isn’t meeting your household needs, you can request an upgrade of the existing service for an additional charge.

    For more information, please phone our Customer Contact Centre.
