GENERAL ADVICE

All tree and shrub prunings collected will be recycled into mulch at the Western Metropolitan Regional Council's Greenwaste Recycling facility in Shenton Park.

By recycling our green waste, we reduce landfill, and create mulch for horticulture and landscaping.

Please do not place any waste on your verge any earlier than TEN DAYS before the collection date.  Council reserves the right to penalise residents who deposit waste prior to ten days before collection or after the collection has been completed.

Don't deposit any waste AFTER 6am on the day of collection as it will not be picked up.

Once your waste is deposited on your verge, please be patient and wait for the completion of the collection process before contacting Council to enquire about collections in your street.

Unauthorised waste will not be collected.  Illegal dumping of waste in the Town of Mosman Park will not be tolerated and any incidences should be reported immediately.

 

 

 

 

What's In a Name? Mosman Park Reveals Reveals Stories Behind Its Historic Place Names

Have you ever visited such places as E. G. Smith Field, or Tom Perrott Reserve and pondered aloud – who were E. G Smith and Tom Perrott, and why are these public spaces named after them?

The Town of Mosman Park has recently revealed these mysteries and many more by launching its “What’s In a Name” series of place signage.

The project came about following the very popular heritage-themed Community Calendar in 2014 and Heritage Trail that created within the community an interest in learning more about the history of our Town.  To harness this enthusiasm, Council made funding available to develop a suite of interpretive signs that explain whom our various parks, reserves, precincts, facilities, buildings and key streets were named after, and revealing the faces and stories behind those names.

The objective of the project is to develop a sense of awareness in the community about the evolution of Mosman Park and to draw attention to the community service given by key leaders in the Town’s past, which was in turn recognised by naming these places in their honour.

Town of Mosman Park CEO Kevin Poynton said: “I encourage all of our residents and visitors to meander through our Town and take the time to stop and read about the key figures of our past, to reflect upon their contribution, and in so doing, enhance knowledge of our local history and feel an increased sense of connectedness to these people and places.”

The nine signs will reveal details about these special places:
• Mann Oval (inc Alf Adams Pavilion)
• Three Boys Park
• Margaret Baldwin Centre
• Harley Terrace (referencing the Harley Scramble)
• Stringfellow Park
• Tom Perrott Reserve (including David Jones Pavilion)
• E.G. Smith Field
• The Coombe Reserve (including references to The Chine / Chine Place)
• Green Place Reserve

Details of each of these places is available here

Bumper Crop of Volunteers Spring Up at Mosman Beach Planting Day

An Indian summer of blue skies and warm temperatures drew out a bumper crop of volunteers who gave up their time to help at Mosman Park’s biggest community planting day of the year.

Close to 100 volunteers of all ages gathered at Mosman Beach on Sunday 28 June for the Town of Mosman Park’s Community Planting Day and worked together in cheerful spirits to continue the many good years of work in preserving the dunes. 

Restoration activities commenced in Mosman Beach in 2012 and have continued over the last four years thanks to funding provided by the WA Planning Commission’s Coastwest grants program.

More than 1,500 seedlings were planted on the day in just over two hours, and among the volunteers were many enthusiastic young people from Mosman Park, neighbouring suburbs (and some from north of the River), and the Friends of Mosman Park Bushland. 

This year saw the revamp of the road reserve along Curtin Avenue, adjoining Tim Anderson's Memorial ghost bike. The Anderson family were out in full force helping with the planting.

The majority of the crowd were enthusiastic youngsters, including both primary and high school students from local schools including Iona and St Hilda’s, as well as members of Mosman Bay Scout group who worked very hard to enhance the ecological value of their local beach and provide habitat for wildlife.

The work done by volunteers at Mosman Beach in planting along the dunes will assist in reducing erosion, increase floristic diversity and connect the biodiversity corridor to neighbouring coastal environments.

Town of Mosman Park CEO, Kevin Poynton, thanked all the volunteers for supporting the day who came together in a spirit of community fellowship, who caught up with old friends and made new ones during the planting and at the free lunch for volunteers that took place when the planting was finished.

Friends of Mosman Park Bushland Coordinator Sue Conlan paid tribute to the Town’s outgoing Natural Resource Management Coordinator, Heidi Khojasteh, thanking her for her dedication, leadership and energy that she had devoted to the planting days and many other bush care initiatives during her years of service to the Town.
