Green Waste Collection 

The Shire of Ashburton provides a free yearly green waste collection for residents in Tom Price, Paraburdoo and Onslow. These collections help to minimise the risk of flying debris during cyclonic weather events.

Register for Green Waste Collection 

As Green Waste Collection will be conducted by hand, residents are asked to register their homes if they have green waste they would like collected. Registration details will open closer to the collection date.
