The City thanks you for recycling right! 

We empty your yellow-lidded recycling bin every fortnight. Each truck holds the contents of up to 300 bins. When full, the recyclables are taken to a Materials Recovery Facility for sorting and baling, ready for transportation off site for further processing.

Remember to place items loosely in your bin and not inside plastic bags. Bagged items cannot be sorted and all contents are taken to landfill. Contamination can make your recycling efforts go to waste.

We encourage you to recycle the following:

  • Plastic containers and bottles
  • Aluminium and steel cans
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Glass

More information on recycling in the City can be found on our What Can I Recycle page, accessible below. For more general information on recycling, visit the WA Government's RecycleRight website. 

You can access information below on where to recycle materials you can not place in your yellow-lidded bin, what to do if your recycling isn't collected, and information on worm farms and composting.
