Other Information

  • Store bins in a shaded area and clean your bins regularly.
  • Wrap all moist and perishable foods in newspaper before placing in your dark green lid refuse bin.
  • Freeze smelly food and place in your dark green lid refuse bin the night before collection.
  • Please remember not to compact the waste as it prevents the bin contents from being emptied. Place bulky lawn clippings and small prunings on top of the material in your dark green lid bin.
  • Please place your bins out on the verge by 6am on the day of your collection.
  • The bin should be one metre from the kerb with the wheels nearest your house and if is also your recycling day please make sure they are at least half a metre apart so the collection trucks can lift and empty them easily.
  • Please keep footpaths clear and ensure bins are clear of obstructions. For example bins should not be under tree canopy and need to be away from parked vehicles, walls or lamp posts.
  • Once your bin is emptied please return bins to your property as soon as possible.
We're working to provide direct feedback to residents on how to use the green lid (general waste) and yellow lid (recycling) bins correctly. During each six-week bin tagging round, areas are randomly chosen to participate.

Waste Education Officers will make a quick visual assessment of the contents at the top of each participating household’s recycling and general waste bins at the kerbside prior to collection on bin day. A ‘happy’ or ‘sad’ tag is placed on the bin providing feedback about its contents and how the household could recycle more and waste less.

The Program focuses on education rather than enforcement, however in a small number of cases where residents’ bins show repeated high contamination over three visits, the bin will not be collected. A tag informing the resident the bin was not able to be collected will be attached to the bin, listing the contaminants and requesting they be removed before contacting the City to have the bin collected. The bin will also be taped shut to let waste truck drivers know not to empty it.

Please note that if your bin is taped shut you will need to remove any contaminants and contact the City to arrange collection.

Recycling FAQs

Lids and containers are often made from different types of materials. By separating them and putting the plastic lids in the green lid bin and container into the yellow lid bin, you are ensuring that the recycling stream does not become contaminated.

Plastic bottle lids are also too small to be collected for processing by the machinery at the Materials Recovery Facility (the place where recyclables go to be sorted) and can impact the operation of this machinery.

Metal lids can be removed from the container or jar and placed in your recycling bin as they are picked up by a magnet at the Materials Recovery Facility and sent into the metal stream for recycling. 
Recyclables that are bagged cannot be properly sorted at the Materials Recovery Facility as they pose a potential hazard to workers and cannot be opened. Any recyclables that are bagged will be removed from the recycling stream and sent to landfill.

Plastic bags and other soft or scrunchable plastics cannot be recycled through the kerbside bin system. They should instead be taken to your local participating supermarket for recycling through the REDcycle program, or placed in your general waste bin.
 
Containers, especially containing any type of food or liquid, should be rinsed prior to placing into the yellow lid bin. Recyclables are sorted at the Materials Recovery Facility into different types, before being baled and sent to a factory for further processing.

To reduce the potential of contamination occurring as a result of residual rotting contents in containers, please rinse your containers before placing them into the recycling bin. This also ensures a safer working environment for workers that come in contact with your recyclables. 

You can use your leftover washing up water to give your recyclables a quick rinse before placing them in the yellow lid bin.
 
Most hard plastics can be recycled. However, there are some types of plastic that can’t go in your recycling bin such as:
  • polystyrene and foam
  • plastic bags and soft, scrunchable  plastics (take to  REDCycle at participating Coles and Woolworths supermarkets)
  • plastic bottle lids. 
Long life cartons and Tetra Paks (used to package long-life milk, alternative milks like soy and almond, juice and various other liquids) are unfortunately not recyclable here in WA. They are made up of a variety of materials, including paperboard and plastic or silver lining, which can't be processed by facilities here. Please place these items in the general waste bin along with the plastic lid.
