Verge Collection

The Shire conducts a residential clean up program three times per year.

The next date for bulk rubbish collection will be 7.00am on 10 August 2015

The Shire of Peppermint Grove’s ‘Bulk Waste Verge Collection’ service is for the pickup of general hard waste, greenwaste and whitegoods only.

  • Loose material such as lawn clippings, small cuttings and leaves must be placed in sealed boxes or bags. Please note these will not be returned.
