Partnership sees old pool covers get a second life

10 August 2022
The City of Canning is partnering with Daisy Pool Covers & Rollers to launch a new recycling program that is re-purposing end-of-life pool covers to help reduce waste sent to landfill.
 
Open to all Western Australian households, this free program adds to the growing list of items that can be recycled or recovered at the City of Canning’s Waste Transfer Station, located at 81 Ranford Road in Canning Vale. 
 
Pool covers will be collected and then transported to Daisy Pool Covers & Rollers in Welshpool where they will start their journey to be reprocessed into variety of products, including mining sample bags and builder’s film.
 
City of Canning Mayor Patrick Hall encouraged residents to make use of the program and said he was looking forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on reducing waste sent to landfill.
 
“It is great to see household items like pool covers, that were previously going to landfill, being recycled into something that is useable once again,” said Mayor Hall.
 
“This program is another positive step forward in creating a more environmentally sustainable community for our residents now and into the future.”
 
All backyard solar bubble style, low density polyethylene (LDPE) style pool covers from any manufacturer will be accepted.
 
The covers should be free of organic waste, and the strappings and roller should be removed prior to being dropped at the Waste Transfer Station.

Residents can visit the City’s Waste and Recycling page to find out more about the initiative.
