Bins

Green lid bins

To find out what day your bins are collected, use the Your neighbourhood tool.

The Town provides each residential property with a 240 litre green lid bin for disposal of general household waste. Green lid bin collections are conducted weekly and commence from 6am. Please ensure that your bin is no heavier than 70kg in weight, the lid is completely closed at all times and placed one metre from the kerbside clear from any obstructions such as power poles, street trees, parked cars and signs etc.

Remember to take your bin back on to your property as soon as possible. The Town of Victoria Park’s Health Local Law 1995 states that “the owner or occupier of premises shall, except for a reasonable period before and after collection times, keep the rubbish bins on the premises and located behind the street alignment so as not to be visible from the street or public place”.

Request for a new or additional bin service

The Town provides each residential property with a 240 litre green lid bin (serviced weekly) for disposal of general household waste as well as a 240 litre yellow (recycling) lid bin (serviced fortnightly).

If you have just built a new property and require bins, you can order a new bin by completing the online application form(PDF, 103KB) and returning it to admin@vicpark.wa.gov.au

Delivery of new bins can take up to five working days so please order your new bin before you plan to move in.

If you would like an additional bin for your property you can order one through our online application form(PDF, 103KB). Please note charges will apply for this additional bin. 

To find out what day your bins are collected, use the Your neighbourhood tool.

Changes to general waste

One car battery and one five-litre container of waste oil can be collected each week. 

Waste oil containers must be fully sealed. Please place the car battery and/or waste oil container on the ground next to the bin, so the waste collection vehicle will see the items as they approach. 

Do not place batteries or waste oil containers in the recycling bin - this has the potential to contaminate the whole load of recyclables.

2017 Christmas bin collections

Christmas Day and New Year's Day 2017 fall on a Monday which would mean a major disruption for all bin pickups for the week. 

If your collection falls on Monday 25 December, your bins will be collected on Saturday 23 December instead.

This will also apply to your bin collection for New Year's Day which falls on Monday 1 January, but your bins will be collected on Saturday 30 December.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause but it is the best outcome for ensuring your bins are collected during this period.
