Properties on Wade Road Brookhampton, Boyup Brook Road (from Donnybrook to Noggerup), areas of Beelerup and properties zoned rural residential in Argyle, Donnybrook (includes Irishtown), Mullalyup, Balingup and Upper Capel localities (Upper Capel refuse only) are also included in the desigated collection area. Properties located on the collection route may elect to utilise the service.
The charges applicable for kerbside refuse and recycling collection are included on the annual rate notice. An interim rate notice wil be issued for properties on a pro-rata basis where either the service is commenced or finalised after issuing the annual rate notice.
