Hard rubbish made easy!

We collect hard waste for City of Prospect residents and each household is entitled to three free ‘at call’ hard waste collections (up to two cubic metres, about the size of a standard trailer load) each year. Book your hard waste collection.

Mattress and ensemble base collections need to be booked separately to other hard rubbish items.  Book a mattress or ensemble collection.

One (1) mattress collection counts for one (1) collection, OR one (1) ensemble, counts for (1) collection.

*NOTE: First Mattress OR ensemble per household can be disposed free of charge, thereafter each subsequent mattress or ensemble will attract a co-contribution payment of $27 per item. This is a 50% subsidised fee and allows items to be recycled.

A mattress = $27 and an ensemble = $27, so both items together will cost $54 for collection.

Kitchen organics baskets & compostable bags
Kitchen Caddy

Prospect Council supplies every resident with a Kitchen Organics Basket and 150 compostable (corn starch) bags to help assist with the collection of food scraps for disposal into the organics (green lidded) bin. This material will be processed into compost rather than sending it to landfill. Council will provide each household with a supply of 150 compostable bags. If you run out of bags before the next scheduled delivery, additional rolls can be collected from Customer Service at Payinthi (128 Prospect Road) subject to available stocks. Certified compostable bags can also be purchased at local supermarkets or you could line your basket with newspaper.

City of Prospect has a strategic approach to waste management, with a focus on reducing the amount of waste that goes to landfill.

The use of Council’s three bin (plus kitchen organics) system is complemented by a range of other services to ensure that waste can be appropriately managed. Together, these services reduce the environmental impact of waste disposal by appropriately sorting waste into different streams. While Council provides waste services and education on effective waste management, the community plays a vital role in reducing the amount of waste to landfill. Audits of bins in 2022 revealed that 38.8% of material in the red waste bins was food and compostable material that could have been placed into the green organics bin for composting. 8.7% of this was packaged food in plastic bags or containers that should have been emptied into the green bin. Only 16% of all food organics were disposed of correctly in the green bin. Food waste presents the biggest opportunity to reduce waste, with $239,000 potential cost savings per year, if all food and compostable materials were placed in the green bin rather than the landfill bin. Residents can help by using their kitchen caddy and compostable bags (free from Council) to collect and dispose of food and compostable material into their green bin.

Council produces a Waste Calendar that identifies when each bin is scheduled for collection and what types of waste go into which bin. Check out the Which Bin website for information on what goes in each bin.
