What is accepted for a Verge Valet™ bulk waste collection?

Bulk Waste

Verge Valet™ accepts most items for collection. Generally, things that the Verge Valet Collection Team cannot collect are listed in the right column below. These items will be left behind if put out for collection, and a non-conformance notice will be issued – this is for the safety of our team.

Each collection must be no more than 3m3 (3m x 1m x 1m). Items must be less than 1.5m in length to be easily picked up and put into the collection truck. We understand this may not be possible for bulky furniture items.

How far in advance do I need to book?

It is recommended to book your Verge Valet collection as early as possible as collection dates will be removed from the booking form once exhausted – you can book up to 8 weeks in advance. Bookings for the following week will be closed on Thursdays if allocations have not been exhausted sooner.


Monday collection – Town of Mosman Park, Town of Cottesloe and Shire of Peppermint Grove.

Tuesday or Wednesday collection – Town of Cambridge and City of Fremantle  (depending on which zone you live in, which can be found in Step 3 of the booking process)

Thursday collection – City of Vincent.

Note: Verge Valetcollections are not available on public holidays. 

How can I change or cancel my booking?

We get it, life happens.

You can change, cancel, or postpone your booking up to one business day before your collection date. Simply complete the Change, Cancel or Contact form in the menu bar above. Alternatively, you can phone the Verge Valet Collection Team on 6336 7223 during business hours.

Please give at least one business day’s notice or you will lose your collection allocation.

How many collections can I book using Verge Valet™?

Your council has set an allocation of Verge Valet™ collections – bulk waste and/or greenwaste – that your property is entitled to each financial year (1 July – 30 June).

Town of Mosman Park – up to 2 bulk waste and 1 greenwaste collection

Town of Cottesloe – up to 2 bulk waste and 1 greenwaste collection

Town of Cambridge – up to 2 bulk waste and 1 greenwaste collection

Shire of Peppermint Grove – up to 3 bulk waste and 3 greenwaste collections

City of Vincent – 1 bulk waste collection

City of Fremantle– 1 bulk waste collection

Collections allocations are defined by property – not to individual residents/families.  Therefore if you move into a property late in the financial year you may find that your predecessor has used some or all of the collections allocated to that property.

You may choose to purchase additional collections through Verge Valet Extra. This is a pre-paid private collection service that follow the same terms, conditions and guidelines to Verge Valet™. To book this, follow your booking all the way through and select the ‘Verge Valet Extra’ box on the Booking Request Form to pay.

Can I book more than one collection at a time?

Yes, if you have more than one allocation of that collection type available (i.e., 2+ bulk waste or 2+ greenwaste), AND your Council has allocated you more than one collection of that type, you can book multiple collections for the same date.

To do this, please make a note on the Booking Request form under “Anything else we need to know about your collection?” that you would like to use 2 allocations for one booking. Alternatively, you can make separate bookings for each collection.

Does the pre-booked service reduce recycling or reuse of items?

No. All items get sorted off site to maximise recovery of materials. And by separating any metals, whitegoods, mattresses and e-waste from your furniture or general junk, we are able to more easily separate items for recycling.

The waste is on the verge for shorter periods of time to reduce illegal dumping and damage/mess caused by excessive rummaging. Other people can still access your waste for reuse.

If you have items that can still be used, please consider your local Facebook Buy Nothing group, online selling sites like Gumtree and Facebook Marketplace, or a charity donation/collection instead. To read more about ways that you can ensure your items go to a good home before using Verge Valet™, please visit our Repair and Reuse Options page.
