Moving to a new area is an exciting time, there are so many possibilities and new faces to meet but sometimes it can be a daunting experience. Becoming familiar with the nuances of a new neighbourhood can take some time, so we’ve done all the hard yards for you! Here is our guide to all you need to know when you become a Kinmore Green resident…
Know your local council
One of the most important things to do when relocating to a new neighbourhood is to familiarise yourself with your local council. This is your first port of call when it comes to all the essentials, community information and events and are always available to assist you with any queries you may have about your new home.

To find out when your bin is collected, what you can/can’t place in your bins and for bulk collection dates head to www.wanneroo.gov.au and navigate to the Waste and Recycling page.
Sticking to your watering days is one of the most important things you can do for your community and for the planet.

Do you have any four-legged friends joining you at Kinmore Green? The City of Wanneroo requires pets to be registered with the council to ensure pet and community safety. Owners of cats over six months must also ensure they are microchipped and wearing a collar and registration tag and sterilised, unless you are a registered breeder. Households in the City of Wanneroo are limited to two dogs (unless provided exemption) and must also be microchipped.
Responsible pet ownership also extends to ensuring vaccinations, worm and flea treatments are kept up to date as well as keeping pets indoors between dawn and dusk to prevent them being involved in road accidents, to protect local flora and fauna and to limit fighting with other animals.
