VERGE collection is back on in Vincent if WA’s coronavirus infection rate remains low.

April’s collections were cancelled over the contractor’s concerns about picking up potentially contaminated junk and because its small team would struggle to absorb absences in the event of illness. 

The pickups will now start July 20.

The council has strongly advised people not to pick through others’ junk piles because of the risk of infection.

“We want to thank community members for their patience and understanding when we put the junk verge collection on hold,” mayor Emma Cole said.

“We believe it is now safe 

to re-schedule bulk hard waste collections and give everyone the chance to get rid of any junk they have, particularly with so many clean ups happening as we spend much more time at home.”

Leaflets will go out ahead of collections across five areas through July and August so don’t jump the gun and dump earlier than the weekend before the pickup.
