WHAT GOES IN THE RECYCLING BIN?

ITEMS THAT DON'T BELONG IN THE RECYCLING BIN 

For all local governments in the Perth Metropolitan Area, there have been changes regarding what can and can’t be recycled in your recycle bin.

These changes are part of an effort to reduce contamination and make recycling easier for everyone.

A clear and consistent list of items that go into your kerbside recycling bin will lead to cost effective and improved recycling outcomes for Western Australia.

SPECIAL RECYCLING ITEMS 

Some waste materials can't be processed in kerbside bins, either because they contain hazardous materials or because they contaminate waste streams. For this reason the Town offers the collection of some specialist materials
