The City provides an annual bulk verge collection.

We will collect items sorted into three separate piles:

  1. White goods
  2. Metal items
  3. Household furniture/bulky items
Sort waste into 3 separate piles

Items we collect:

  • White goods (fridges, stoves, ovens, etc.) - detach doors from fridges and freezers
  • Metal items and scrap metal
  • Large household furniture and bulky items

Items we do not collect:

  • Glass, including plate glass, mirrors, shower screens and glass in furniture
  • Tyres or motor vehicle parts 
  • TV's, computers and printers
  • Mattresses
  • Building materials, bricks, paving, tiles, toilet cisterns, concrete, wire, sand or cement
  • Asbestos or fibre cement products
  • Garden organics and food waste
  • Fire extinguishers, EPIRBs or flares
  • Hazardous waste, i.e. chemicals, oils, paint, pesticides, solvents, batteries, gas bottles, empty aerosol cans or smoke detectors 
  • Items over 1.8 metres in length and over the allowed volume
  • Unsorted waste

Any items that are not collected can be dropped off at the Armadale Landfill and Recycling Facility. (Fees may apply)

Once your items have been collected, a quick clean up of any broken pieces left behind will help protect the local environment. This stops debris being washed into local waterways or causing harm.

Guidelines to ensure waste is collected

  • Place waste on the verge on your scheduled weekend. The contractor will only check the verge once and the collection will start from 7am on the Monday, continuing in the area until all waste presented is collected.
  • If you're sharing a verge with a neighbour, notify the City prior to collection start date.
  • Place waste on the verge one metre (1m) back from the kerb, taking care not to obstruct footpaths, bus shelters, line of sight or create a safety hazard.
  • Place items clear of vehicles, trees, water meters, fences, letterboxes, reticulation and sprinklers to allow collection without causing damage.
  • Make sure there is no more than 4 cubic metres of general bulk waste and no more than 4 cubic metres combined metals and white goods.
  • Excess waste will not be collected (waste over the size limit or volume limit).
  • Do not put bulk waste out prior to your nominated weekend as you may receive a $200 litter infringement.

Arrange an alternative collection location

If you have no verge or live in a battleaxe block, unit, rear collection (laneway) or hills site and are the owner, complete the Nomination for alternative collection location form and send to Waste Services at info@armadale.wa.gov.au

Look up Your Verge Collection Zone

Look up your verge collection zone by starting to enter your house number and street name and wait for a drop down box to appear and select your address.

Handy hint: keep track of your recycling fortnight (Area) by marking this on your Waste and Recycling Guide.

The Waste and Recycling Guide is delivered to each household in December for the following calendar year. If you have not received a hard copy of the Waste and Recycling Guide contact Waste Services on 9394 5124.

What if my bin(s) have not been collected?

If you think that your bin has not been emptied please check your bin first as there are trucks that leave the lids closed once emptied. If there is waste in the bin then contact Waste Services on 9394 5124.

Make sure your bins are out by 6am to make sure they are emptied on your bin day.
