Missed bin service (bin not emptied)

If your bin wasn't collected on its scheduled day, there could be a number of reasons why, including:

  • Incorrect bin placement: Your bin should be placed 1m from the kerb, with the wheels facing away from the kerb. Multiple bins should be placed 0.5 metres apart.
  • Bin placed at the wrong time: Make sure your bins are placed out before 6am on the day of collection.
  • Contaminated bin: If your recycling bin contains non-recyclable waste, like plastic bags or green waste, it can contaminate an entire truck load, reverting it to landfill. Refer to How to Use Your Bins
  • Exceeds maximum weight limit: The contents of your bins must weigh less than 50kg, otherwise our waste trucks cannot lift it. Bins weighing over 50kg could be labelled with a non-compliant sticker or letter. The resident will need to make alternative arrangements for that waste to be collected.
  • Bin jammed full: Overfilling your bin and jamming the waste into it can prevent its contents from being emptied.  Larger or heavier items should be placed at the bottom of the bin to reduce jamming
  • Non compliant bin: We only collect bins belonging to Shire of Mundaring. These bins have our stamp on the lid. If your bin is not compliant, a sticker or letter will be placed on it explaining why, instructions on what you can do and details of who you can contact. Your collection service will not resume until you rectify the situation.

Please contact us for more information.

Non-prescribed properties (location not serviceable) 

All non-prescribed properties are eligible for access to the Shire's Community Recycling Centres subject to payment of a fee.

Payment will need to be paid for prior to receiving the entry pass. The pass allows unlimited entries for green waste and certain recyclables. The pass also contains three general waste entries (up to a 6 x 4 high sided trailer equivalent) for waste to landfill.

In addition, only those property owners without a kerbside bin service are entitled to purchase a domestic waste load ticket for a fee, which allows disposal of general domestic waste up to the equivalent of 140 Litres. This waste must be bagged or in receptacles.

To obtain the domestic load tickets you must first purchase the Community Recycling Entry Pass. 

More information and contact

Current fees are available in the schedule of fees and charges schedule (page 35).
