Recycling and you

The City provides a fortnightly domestic recycling collection service to residents. Bins are collected by robotic arm vehicles and it is important that you follow the bin set out guidelines. For more information about bin placement and collection guidelines please use the links below.

The truck holds a load equivalent to the contents of 300 bins. When the truck is full, the recyclables are taken to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF).

At the MRF, the recyclables are sorted, separated and baled ready for transportation off site for further processing.

Please place items loosely within your bin, and not inside plastic bags. Bagged items cannot be sorted at the MRF and the contents become general waste which is sent to landfill.

Batteries, fluorescent lamps and e-waste

Over 18 million household batteries are thrown away in WA each year. Recycling compact fluorescent lamps prevents the release of mercury into the environment and batteries can be recycled into new products.
