MOBILE WHEELIE BINS

Council’s rubbish removal service is provided under contract by Avon Waste. Collection day for all bins (Commercial and Domestic) is on Friday. Please ensure bins are placed kerbside prior to 6am to ensure collection.

Do not leave your bin permanently by the kerb as the replacement of a stolen or damaged bin will be at your expense. The bin has a serial number stamped on the side and this number is recorded against your property address. Should you vacate the house, the bin should remain. Avon Waste will only collect the number of bins allocated to each property on councils rating system.

If you require replacement or additional bins please complete a bin request form from Administration Office to arrange delivery. Alternatively, please contact the Administration office if you want to have unwanted bin(s) removed from your property.

WASTE TRANSFER STATION

Situated 5km south of Kellerberrin on Inverarity Road, the transfer station is open weekly from Friday to Monday 8am to 12pm and 12.30pm to 5pm with a supervisor in attendance at all times.

The transfer station will only accept household rubbish, green waste, private use engine oil or domestic items. Some building materials may be accepted with prior approval from the Manager Works and Services (charges may apply). It will not accept tyres, concrete slabs, car batteries, fibre cement, rubber and asbestos or industrial/commercial rubbish.

TOWNSITE VERGE COLLECTION

Council previously had verge rubbish collections once per annum. However this service will no longer be offered due to increasing OH&S requirements placed on Council and the additional costs involved with all waste having to be transported to Northam.

RECYCLING SERVICES

Recyclable goods (cans, cardboard, paper glass and plastic) can be placed in the bins provided on Leake Street (Car Park adjacent to Centenary Park). Please FLATTEN cardboard boxes and ensure all items are empty/clean, and suitable for recycling. The cardboard bin is emptied fortnightly and the co-mingle is emptied monthly by Avon Waste, however if you notice the bins are full please notify the Shire office, so collection can be arranged.
