Two-stream Waste Collection Service

The Shire of Peppermint Grove has a two-stream waste collection service, utilising two mobile garbage bins (MGBs):

  • A 240 litre MGB with a green lid which is your domestic refuse bin and is collected from every property each Wednesday.
  • A 240 litre MGB with a yellow lid which is your recycling bin. The recycling bin is collected every second Wednesday.
  • From the 6 June 2012 the Shire will be providing a return bin service only. You will be required to place your bin on the verge, prior to 7am on the day of collection.

Recycling Matters!

In WA our recycling centres are willing and able to take your recyclables. Not sure what goes into your yellow-lidded kerbside recycling bin? View the Recycling Matters Fact Sheet and find out what can and can’t go into your kerbside recycling bin. If in doubt, put it in your general waste bin (red or dark green lid)

Unsure of how to dispose of a specific item? Then check out the Earth Carers A-Z Waste and Recycling Guide for more information.
