Community waste drop-off weekend - February 2018

Community waste drop-off weekend - February 2018

Recycling logo

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.

Tyres

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.

  • Free drop-off, up to a maximum of 4 tyres per household. No rims (please remove before arriving at Ashby for drop-off). 
  • 4x4, motorcycle and passenger vehicle tyres ONLY. NO commercial tyres

Clothing

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.
