Waste Management

Rubbish Collection

Deep sewerage is not provided anywhere within the district.Consequently, septic tanks and leach drains are the predominant method of effluent disposal.This method has operated satisfactorily in the past. Rubbish is collected in the Boyup Brook town every Thursday morning. Please ensure your “wheelie” bin is on the kerb side before 6am. Bins that are too heavy (70kg limit) will not be emptied.

If you live in the townsites of Dinninup, Wilga and Kulikup, we will collect rubbish every second Monday morning. The rubbish is collected in a Shire ute and consequently only rubbish in bags that can be lifted into the ute will be accepted.
