The City of Gosnells offers residents a weekly waste collection, a fortnightly recycling collection and two bulk and green verge collections per year. More information about these services can be found below. Additional information on each topic is available in the webpages linked below.

The City thanks you for recycling right! 

We empty your yellow-lidded recycling bin every fortnight. Each truck holds the contents of up to 300 bins. When full, the recyclables are taken to a Materials Recovery Facility for sorting and baling, ready for transportation off site for further processing.

Remember to place items loosely in your bin and not inside plastic bags. Bagged items cannot be sorted and all contents are taken to landfill. Contamination can make your recycling efforts go to waste.

We encourage you to recycle the following:

  • Plastic containers and bottles
  • Aluminium and steel cans
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Glass


The grey 240 litre rubbish bin provided by the City is for your general domestic waste only. This includes all organic waste such as food waste, garden waste, lawn clippings, and general household waste.

Bins are collected by robotic arm vehicles and it is important that you follow the bin set out guidelines. Please ensure your bins are on the verge by 6am on the day of your collection, and are placed away from trees, parked cars and letter boxes.

Waste to Energy and Sustainability 

The way your waste is processed will be changing soon - the City has signed up to a Waste to Energy project which will convert residual household waste into energy. You can read more about this by following the link below.
