Important Notice:

The verge collections scheduled for October/November 2022 and April/May 2023 are cancelled ahead of the Town's transition to a booked skip bin service launch. Please do not place material out for these cancelled collections. 

Skip Bins, Mattresses and Fridges

The Town is transitioning to a booked Skip Bin service. There are multiple benefits to an on-demand Skip Bin service such as convenience and reduced dumping. Previous community feedback has supported this change.

If you have unwanted items that could be repaired or are in good condition, see tips here on: Reuse, Repair, Gifting and Drop Off Points » Town of Bassendean

From Thursday 10 November 2022 residents will be able to order one general waste skip bin, and one green waste skip bin per financial year.  The first bins are to be delivered on Thursday 1 December 2022.  Alternatively, residents can also choose to order two green waste skip bins per financial year.

To book a skip bin please call Veolia on 9350 7195.

Where a verge is not suitable for a skip bin, residents may be eligible for a bin to be emptied from private property with the signing of a waiver and approval from Veolia.  If this is not possible, then a booked verge collection may be offered based on an assessment by Veolia.  If all the previous methods are not viable, the Town may elect to provide 2 additional tip vouchers.

The Green Waste Skip Bin can accept the following items, provided they are up to a maximum length of 1500mm x 200mm diameter:
  • Tree branches and prunings
  • Palm fronds
  • Creepers and vines
  • Succulents
  • Tree stumps
  • Lawn clippings and loose leaves (can be placed in a cardboard box)

As this material is turned into mulch, DO NOT place garden waste in plastic bags or contaminate with non-green materials.

  • General household material
  • Bulky household items
  • Furniture
