Managing Waste

The Town of Claremont provides waste and recycling services for residential properties. Each property has:

  • a 120-litre general waste bin with a dark green or red lid (collected weekly); and

  • a 240-litre recycling bin with a yellow lid (collected fortnightly).

Properties larger than 400 square metres (400sqm) will also have:

  • a 240-litre garden organics (GO) bin with a lime-green lid (collected fortnightly)

Bin tagging

The Town participates in the Bin tagging education program in partnership with the Western Metropolitan Regional Council.

You can read more about this education program here.

Bin collection schedule

Residents receive weekly general waste and alternating fortnightly recycling and green waste bin collection services. 

The Town's Waste & Recycling Guide provides a great variety of information on what to do with your waste. This includes information on what items can go in each bin, verge collection information as well as further information about the Town's closest recycling centre, the West Metropolitan Recycling Centre.

Reduce your landfill by reusing, recycling and repurposing when possible. Each property owner receives a hard copy of the Waste & Recycling Guide with their rates which includes tip passes.
