How to Present Your Verge Waste
Please follow the instructions below:
✔ Place neatly on the verge no more than 7 days prior to your scheduled collection
✔ Place away from trees, walls, fences, sprinklers and vehicles
✔ Place white goods, steel and e-waste in a separate pile from other verge collection items
✔ Keep checking your pile to ensure compliance
✔ Allow seven working days for collection
✘ DO NOT obstruct any footpaths, driveways, your normal bin services or the line of sight of pedestrians and road users
✘ DO NOT place near water meters, street signs, power poles or green power domes
✘ DO NOT place any items on vacant land or public reserves as penalties apply for illegal dumping
✘ DO NOT place commercial waste on your verge or place waste on commercial property verges – they will not be collected
✘ DO NOT follow your neighbour – check collection dates for your address first
Please note: Waste will not be collected if it doesn’t conform to the above guidelines or is placed out late. Removal of non-conforming waste becomes the responsibility of the resident and must be done within 7 days, otherwise a $200.00 Littering Infringement may be issued. In addition, you may also be charged the costs for removal and disposal of the waste if the City has to undertake the clean up.

- Branches must be stripped of all Qfly host fruit before being left out for verge collection
- All removed Qfly host fruit must be treated immediately by eating, cooking, freezing or solarising
- Treated Qfly host fruit can only be disposed of in your general waste bin (red bin). It cannot be placed in your FOGO bin or out for green waste collection.
