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

Annually all ratepayers will be sent a single copy with your annual rates mail out of the Shire's Recycling Calendar. This calendar (see link below) lists the days your bins are scheduled to be emptied (both recycling and general), information on collection dates and zones, what you should put into the recycling bins and green waste collection dates. Where rubbish collection days fall on a public holiday your rubbish will be collected as normal with the exception of Christmas Day only.

If you need more than 1 x physical copy of the Recycling Calendar (including magnetic backing) contact the Shire on (08) 9575 5100 or you can pick up a copy from either the Shire's Gingin Administration Centre (7 Brockman St) or from our Lancelin Office (255 Vins Way) or you can also contact Avon Waste (the Shire's service provider) for a copy on 1800 059 391 or (08) 9641 1318

Need a Replacement Bin?

Please contact the Shire's Rates Department if you require a replacement bin. Call (08) 9575 5100 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 (this year being 25-27 September 2021).

Only residential and rural residential properties qualify to receive this service. A copy of the conditions for participating is included with the annual Rates mail out to all rate payers annually (refer to the Council to Community Annual Issue) but can also be viewed below. 

Green Waste Collection Flyer - Conditions of Participation

As part of this service, the mulch generated from the green waste material is made available for the community's use. A list of collection points will be advertised on the Shire's Facebook page and possibly through the electronic issue of the Council to Community (which is issued at the end of the month) generally later in October. It is first come, first served.
