Rubbish collection fees

The standard rubbish service provided by the Shire of Toodyay is a weekly collection of one 240ltr mobile garbage bin and a fortnightly collection of one 240ltr mobile recycle Bin. The cost for this service has remained the same as last year and is as follows:

 

 

• $230 per annum domestic (one weekly rubbish collection, one fortnightly recycle collection)
• $250 per annum commercial (one weekly rubbish collection, one fortnightly recycle collection)

This cost applies to all mandatory and non-mandatory rubbish pick up.  Optional rubbish collection is only available for those who reside along the collection route.

Residents who have the FULL service provided ie: one weekly rubbish collection, one fortnightly recycle collection, can add an additional bin with pick up (rubbish or recycle) for the following costs:

• $80 per annum domestic – one additional bin & bin pick up (either rubbish or recycle)
• $100 per annum commercial - one additional bin & bin pick up (either rubbish or recycle)

For example, a resident who receives the full service can add an additional recycle or rubbish bin for a further cost of $80 per annum (domestic) or $100 per annum (commercial).

All charges are per annum but a resident who requests that the service be added part way throughout the financial year, will be charged on a pro-rata basis.

Please note that once a resident opts to utilise this service, the option to withdraw from the service will not be available until the following financial year.

If you require a new or additional service, please contact the Shire.
