The Shire of Exmouth is providing its free annual cyclone clean-up for residents. Green Waste will be collected during the week starting MONDAY 15th NOVEMBER  2021. The waste collected can then be mulched and made available to residents.

To ensure the success of the clean-up, please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Council will collect green waste only
  • Green waste must be separated into different groups (i.e. bagged leaves, palm cuttings/fronds, branches, trunks). Palm fronds will not be mulched so please ensure they are kept separate for collection
  • Council will not enter private property to collect waste. All items must be on the verge
  • Tree pruning waste is to be no longer than 5 metres and is to be separated from all other waste (clean green waste)
  • Loose material such as leaves and other vegetation should be suitably wrapped, tied or placed in bags/boxes to prevent litter spread and to aid collection. Loose leaf litter will not be collected.
  • Keep all green waste clear of fences, water meters, power poles, vehicles, trailers, Telstra pits, driveways, footpaths and gardens to ensure it is accessible for bobcats/loaders

If any other items are placed on the verge or contrary to the above guidelines, your entire pile of waste will not be removed by the Shire. You will also be required to remove the items yourself and could be liable to a penalty (maximum being $5000.00)

PLEASE HAVE ITEMS ON YOUR VERGE BY SUNDAY 14th NOVEMBER 2021. Items placed on the verge after this date will not be removed.  Inspections will be undertaken to ensure compliance.

If you have any enquiries please do not hesitate to contact the Shire Works Depot on   9949 3080.
