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.

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 first 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.

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