Waste Management

Waste Collection Update

There will be delays in the collection of residents refuse and recycling bins this week after an incident involving our Waste Alliance partner, Transpacific Cleanaway.

The delays are expected to be up to 24 hours (at this stage).

Residents are asked to place their refuse and recycling bins out on the verge as per the normal schedule and to keep them on the verge until collected.

Normal collection hours will be adjusted and will continue longer than usual to possibly 6pm to allow for the backlog of bins to be collected.

The entire Transpacific Cleanaway fleet has been grounded following a fatal crash in South Australia on Monday, every vehicle in the Mandurah fleet will be thoroughly inspected before receiving clearance to return to work.

Further updates will be provided as information comes to hand, residents co-operation and patience is greatly appreciated.

For more information please contact the Waste Alliance Customer Service Centre on 9550 4700.

City of Mandurah Cleanaway Waste Alliance


Transpacific CleanawayTranspacific Cleanaway is the City of Mandurah's Alliance partner for the provision of all waste management services within the municipality.


The Alliance was born from an extensive process, which began in 1998. Council was seeking a method of waste management service delivery, which would help to achieve significant reductions to landfill by the implementation of technologies to recover "waste". To achieve this, the City required input from a very professional, well experienced and highly specialised organisation. Visit Transpacific Cleanaway now to learn more.


What makes this Alliance so different and effective is that any cost benefits gained over the life of the Alliance contract (15 years) will be shared, and the parties will also share any risk on an equal basis. The City of Mandurah and Transpacific Cleanaway will be working as one to bring best practice in waste management services to the residents of Mandurah.


CleanawayThe primary objective for both parties then is to find the best solutions available for waste management and to provide those services at the best price for the ratepayers of the City of Mandurah. The significant benefits brought about from the Alliance will be reflected in the extensive range of cost-effective services that will be provided to the residents of Mandurah.
