Council decides on pre-booked service for 2024

The City of Cockburn's bulk waste verge collection service can be pre-booked at your convenience come July 2024, following a decision at June's Council meeting.

Bulk waste verge collections currently operate on a scheduled service, with set collection dates throughout the year. Under the pre-booked service, residents can book one hard and one green waste collection when it suits them. Ratepayers will also retain their six trailer passes.

The transition will take two years to complete, so collections will operate on their normal schedule until mid-2024.

Project background

A growing population and increasing waste generation mean the City’s scheduled bulk waste verge collection service is at capacity.

The service was reviewed to ensure future operations continue to meet community needs, while remaining sustainable, cost-effective and aligned with Western Australia's waste reduction targets.

Thank you for your input

The City last year sought community perspectives on the scheduled and alternative service models. Over 1000 people participated in an online survey, community workshops, Facebook Live event and face-to-face discussions.

Feedback was compiled in a report alongside a detailed assessment of budget, resources, waste recovery information and more. The report was recently presented to the City's Expenditure Review Committee, resulting in a recommendation to adopt a pre-booked service model.

Council considered the report at their June meeting and voted in support of the Committee's recommendation, making the change official.

Thank you for helping to shape this important decision.
