WAR Wednesdays glass.png

Glass (even broken glass) can go in your yellow lid recycling bins.

Glass is not recycled into glass products here in WA (yet), so reuse and repurpose is always a better option.

But for glass that can’t be reused or repurposed, or is broken, please place loosely (not wrapped) into your yellow bin.

This glass is screened at the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and used as a component of road base. 

WAR Wednesdays aerosol (1).png

Aerosol cans can’t be placed in ANY of your bins and can’t be recycled through your kerbside services as they pose a major fire hazard for trucks and for the infrastructure processing our waste.

They can be brought for recycling to the Admin Centre (Bold Park drive) or taken to Brockway Transfer Station in Shenton Park.

From there they are then collected by metal recycling contractor for safe shredding and recycling of the metals.

 

WAR Wednesdays batteries (2).png

 

Household batteries can’t be placed in ANY of your bins and can’t be recycled through your kerbside services as they pose a major fire hazard for trucks and for the infrastructure processing our waste.

They can be brought for recycling to the Admin Centre (Bold Park drive) along with other drop off points around the town.

Batteries are 100% recyclable, and pose a risk to our groundwater and fauna if they end up in landfill.

Hoses and reticulation pipe can’t be placed in ANY of your bins and can’t be recycled through your kerbside services as they entangle the machinery at the Recovery Facilities.
These should be collected throughout the year and placed out for verge collection or disposed of at your local tip.
Another option if they are in usable/repairable condition: post them as a free item on your local Facebook Buy Nothing groups or the Buy Sell Swap Free groups.
