Garbage and Recycling

The Municipality of North Perth uses the automated waste and recycling program, which requires residents to use wheelie bins.

How to Use Your Bins

  • Park It - Place your bins just off the roadway on the shoulder grass or driveway.
  • Point It - The arrow on the bin lid must point to the centre of the road.
  • Space It - Leave at least 1 meter (or an arm's length) of clearance between each bin and any obstacles, such as parked cars, poles and mailboxes.
  • All material must fit within the bin and the lid must be closed.
  • No extra materials will be collected. RECYCLE WHEN YOU CAN!
  • Breakdown boxes and flatten your containers to allow for better fit in your bins.
  • Have your bins out by 7:00 A.M. on your scheduled collection day. This will ensure they are picked up.
