The City of Wanneroo is holding a drop-off weekend for residents, collecting a selection of items that will be reused or recycled.
Is it time to declutter your wardrobe or linen cupboard? Are you ready to cull your collection of old obsolete technology? Do you have some old tyres that need to tread the path towards recycling? Are you still inundated with cardboard boxes and polystyrene packaging from Christmas?
The City of Wanneroo is committed to reducing waste to landfill, aiming for a 65% or more diversion rate by 2020. To help achieve this target, the City of Wanneroo is holding a drop-off weekend for residents, collecting a selection of items that will be reused or recycled.
In partnership with Tyrecycle, the tyres collected at this drop-off weekend will be reprocessed to be used in a range of applications, including athletic tracks, building insulation, soft fall surfaces, and even new tyres.
Help your unwanted textiles find a new home. A number of registered charity organisations will be on site to collect your unwanted clothing. Clothing collected at this drop-off weekend will be on-sold through the charities’ retail outlets, or sent overseas to people in need.
Items that will be accepted.
Electronic waste or e-waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams in Australia. These products contain precious resources and sometimes hazardous materials that cannot be recovered through your kerbside recycling or domestic waste bins. Items collected will be disassembled by Total Green Recycling, with components made of materials such as steel, copper, aluminium and plastic recycled back into new products.
E-waste items accepted:
Cardboard or polystyrene packaging can be dropped off (no meat trays, cups or beads) for recycling.
The following items can be taken to Tamala Park or Balcatta Recycling Centre. Fees may apply; contact the site for more details.
