Waste & property clean-up

A hotline for residents enquiring about Site Planning Meetings has been established, 1800 328 997. A second hotline for the demolition and debris removal bookings will be set up once works commence. 

For safety reasons, only adults should help clean up after a bushfire. Please read our health and safety advice before clearing your property.

Bin & verge collections

We are collecting general waste and recycling bins. General waste and green waste tip passes are also available at the Bushfire Recovery Centre.

Green waste removal

The City is mindful of the accumulation of green waste on properties affected by the recent bushfire. Following the initial state-led clean-up of debris, if you still require assistance with green waste removal, please contact the City with the approximate amount and location on your property on 9267 9267 or email bushfirerecoverygroup@swan.wa.gov.au. They City will organise either mulching or collection following the initial state-led clean up of debris.  

Special bulk collection

The City will arrange a special bulk collection in the coming weeks with the assistance from the state government. We ask you to please keep any bulk green or general waste items on your property and not on the verge for now. Our priority is to ensure the roads and road verges are safe and clear of debris. We will provide further information once a special collection is scheduled.

Coordinated Residential Clean-up Program

A hotline for residents enquiring about Site Planning Meetings has been established (Ph. 1800 328 997) and a second hotline for the demolition and debris removal bookings will be set up once works commence. 

The State Government will be working closely with the City of Swan and Shire of Mundaring to roll out the Wooroloo Bushfire Coordinated Residential Clean-up Program.

The Program is jointly funded through the Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements, and forms part of a broader $18.1 million community recovery package.

Residents whose homes were destroyed or damaged by the bushfire are eligible for the clean up program whether they are fully insured, partly insured or not insured. 

If buildings, structures or vehicles on your residential property have been damaged or destroyed by the bushfire and require removal, you can register for the Wooroloo Bushfire Coordinated Residential Clean-up Program. 

View the Wooroloo Bushfire Coordinated Residential Clean-up Program Information Sheet(PDF, 164KB).

The clean-up will include removal of debris associated with bushfire-damaged houses, structures and vehicles, as well as trees deemed a direct safety risk. Visit the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation website for more information about the full scope of works.

Coordination of the clean-up program is being managed by the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER), in collaboration with the City of Swan, the Shire of Mundaring, and the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES).

 It is estimated the program will start in early March and will take approximately three months to complete.

How can I register?

If you are a resident of the City of Swan who has been impacted by the bushfires, we will contact you directly in coming days by phone or email to provide you with an ‘Authority to Act’ form that will allow contractors who are engaged by the State Government to carry out debris removal on your property.

Once the ‘Authority to Act’ form is approved, you will be contacted to arrange a site clean-up planning meeting to go through the details of the debris removal process program.

More detailed information about the Wooroloo Bushfire Coordinated Residential Clean-up Program is available from the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation website.
