Now the extra bin collections over the holiday period have finished up, normal bin collection days have resumed. 

Forgotten what the 'normal' days are? This image below shows the correct bin day calendar. Please note there was an error in the Resource Recovery Guide 2020/21 bin day calendar. Printed guides that were posted out had red bin collection for the first week of August instead of yellow.

Please continue with the existing routine of putting out your bins as per the amended calendar below.

Now is a great time to pop a recurring bin day reminder in your phone or if you would like a printed copy you can download the calendar here or pick up a sticker calendar at the Shire offices.

Aaaah, Augusta, what a beautiful place.  As part of the annual budget for purchasing bin surrounds, we have commenced installing them along our high profile area along the Blackwood River in Augusta.  From old to new – what a difference a bin makes.

Heaps of colour in Cowaramup right now.  Here is what they have been doing. 

Over the last few years ,the Parks & Gardens team have been working very hard to improve the appearance of the Shire.  These photos show some examples of the work that they have achieved.

This has come about by working from a preferred plant and tree species list comprising of:

  • plants that are water wise;
  • with good growth habits;
  • flowering if possible; and
  • require a lower level of service than plants that were used previously by the shire and developers.

This work will be continuing in years to come in areas such as Hillier and Georgette POS and along road verges at Rotary Park and the Main Street through Margaret River.

Landscape works have taken place to improve the appearance of the facility and prevent people from parking where they should not.  More work to follow for the rest of the area and further planting under the trees.

During this financial year, P&G will be reinstating damaged garden edging and constructing new edging in various parks throughout the shire.  This is being conducted to remove potential safety risks and to prevent the turf from growing into garden beds.  This will help to reduce the amounts of spraying we have to conduct and reduce the amount of Glyphosate we use.  Here is an example from Shilton POS.
