Rubbish Collection

Weekly Verge Collection

Council supplies 240 litre mobile bins to each residential property within the townsites and, on request, to commercial premises.

Ratepayers are charged $292.50 (ex GST) for the 2019/2020 financial year for a weekly verge collection service.

All bins must be out on your verge for collection by 6am on the allocated collection day.

When placed out on the verge, please ensure the bin handles are facing your house to ensure the truck is able to pick the bin up for emptying.

Collection days for the respective areas are as follows:

Monday Lawson
Tuesday Port Hedland and Turner River Estate
Wednesday Koombana
South Hedland Rural Estate
Thursday Wedgefield
Pretty Pool
Cooke Point
Friday Walnut Grove

The rubbish collection service runs all year, including public holidays, except for Christmas Day and Good Friday.  If your service falls on Christmas Day or Good Friday,  your bin will be emptied the following day.

Only items placed inside the bins will be collected. Do not leave excess rubbish on the verge, it will not be collected.

Do Not overfill your bin - it must be able to close fully and not weigh over 75kg.  If this occurs, it will not be collected.

All mobile bins are to remain as part of the property and must not be removed or taken to a new property if you move.

Bins must be maintained and cleaned regularly.

Residents may be held liable for any damage or loss of bins.
