Waste Management

Rubbish Collection

The Shire of Gingin provides a weekly rubbish service in all towns and rural residential areas within the Shire. This service includes general waste collection (red lid bin) and recyclables (yellow lid bin), and is available to property owners along the rubbish collection route. This service forms part of, and supports, the Waste Authority's 'Better Bins' initiative.

Rubbish Collection Days

Please see the link to the Resource Recovery Calendar below for the days your bins are scheduled to be emptied. Where rubbish collection days fall on a public holiday it will be collected as normal with the exception of Christmas Day only.

To access a copy of the current year's Resource Recovery Calendar - which includes information on collection dates and zones, what you should put into the recycling bins, and green waste collection dates - please see link below, or alternatively a magnetic hard copy may be obtained from the Shire Offices or from Avon Waste.

Our waste collection service provider is Avon Waste who can be contacted on either 1800 059 391 or 9641 1318.

Need a Replacement Bin?

Please contact the Shire's Rates Department if you require a replacement bin. Call (08) 9575 5126 or email rates@gingin.wa.gov.au.

If your bin has been stolen or damaged, there is an $85 replacement charge which must be paid prior to delivery of the new bin. Once payment is received we will contact Avon Waste to organise your replacement bin.

If your bin needs replacing through general wear and tear, please let our Rates team know and they will arrange for Avon Waste to replace it free of charge.

Annual Green Waste Kerbside Collection

Once a year the Shire arranges a verge side collection for green waste. This service is available to residential and rural residential properties only and usually occurs following the long weekend in September. All properties that qualify will be sent a letter annually which details the conditions to be be able to participate in the verge side collection. A copy of this letter is available below.
