What Goes In the Recycling Bin 

The waste collected in your yellow topped Recycle bin is taken to the Regional Resource Recovery Centre in Canning Vale where items are sorted and separated into different waste streams. Improve the rates of recovery by preventing forms of contaminants entering into your 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 yellow lid 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.
