Rubbish Collection and Effluent Disposal

Deep sewerage is not provided anywhere within the district. Consequently, septic tanks and leach drains are the predominant method of effluent disposal. To organise septic tank emptying ring Bridgetown Liquid Waste on 9731 2650 or Mob: 0428 771 223 or Warren Blackwood Waste (Cleanaway) 0427 771 025. For more information on septic tanks visit the Department of Health website.

Rubbish is collected in the Boyup Brook town every Wednesday morning. Please ensure your “wheelie” bin is standing up facing the correct direction on the kerb side before 6am. Bins that are too heavy (70kg limit) will not be emptied. Rubbish that escapes from the bins prior and during the emptying process is the land owners responsibility.

If your bin has not been emptied contact SUEZ on 13 13 35.

For more information on the general waste lifecycle and what is acceptable general waste please visit the Suez website.

The bins belong to the Shire of Boyup Brook, if repairs to bins are required please ring the Shire on 97651200

Bulk Rubbish for Landfill

Customers wanting to take bulk rubbish directly to landfill will need to contact the Shire Administration Office to arrange payment, prior to arranging for it to be dropped off. All customers must be accompanied when they are dropping rubbish off as this is a condition of our licence.

Once paid for, you will need to contact the Shire Depot to arrange a time to drop off the rubbish.  The Landfill can only be accessed with a member of Shire staff is present, which is normally midday Wednesdays.

If the Depot is unattended, please email natasha.minson@BoyupBrook.wa.gov.au with your name and phone number and confirmation that they you have paid so that the depot can contact you and arrange a suitable time. A copy of your receipt will need to be brought with you on the day the rubbish is dropped off, so that the Shire staff can verify the quantities.
