The City of Canning has become a ClimateClever partner and to celebrate, we’re offering 200 fully-subsidised ClimateClever Homes memberships. With many people now working from home or finding themselves without employment, household utility bills are a growing concern. The ClimateClever Home app helps measure your home utility use and costs and identifies strategies to save you money. It also calculates and tracks your carbon emissions, so you can feel good about doing your bit for the planet too!

Grow It Local
The City of Canning has partnered with Grow It Local to help educate and inspire more people to grow, share and eat.
Why grow your own?
To improve the health and well-being of people, our communities and the planet.
Some of the benefits of growing your own food include:
- positive mental health and well being
- access to healthy, fresh, nutrient-dense foods
- physical activity
- reconnecting with nature
- greater appreciation of food and reduced food waste
- increased adoption of composting
- stronger and more resilient communities
- tastier and more delicious food!
What does it cost?
The program is free for residents to participate.
Why is Council involved?
Grow It Local is one of a number of local council initiatives designed to encourage positive sustainable living behaviour and food systems, in order to facilitate community building; support waste education; and divert organic waste from landfill.
How to get involved?
Sign-up for free and see what’s growing locally and connect with local growers and food lovers.
Reuse Market Open Day
The City regularly hosts Reuse Market Open Days at our Waste Transfer Station in Canning Vale. The market is open 8am to 12pm on the third Saturday of every second month and is managed by Workpower, an organisation that promotes employment for people with disability. All proceeds are used for the market’s ongoing operation and other community waste-related initiatives. For further information please visit our Reuse Market page.
The next edition is scheduled for February 2022 to accommodate renovations at the Waste Transfer Station.
