Domestic waste bins (green top bin)
The City provides our residents with a weekly domestic waste collection service. The waste from your green top domestic waste bin is taken to the Resource Recovery Facility (RRF) in Neerabup, where an industrial composting process turns your waste into a soil conditioner. Waste that can’t be composted is sent to landfill.

Additional bin collection
A one off, extra bin collection can be arranged for residents who have too much rubbish and cannot wait until next week’s collection. There is an additional bin collection fee which must be paid online.
Recycling bins (yellow top bins)
Residents also have a yellow top recycling bin for the collection of recyclable packaging and other materials. The things in your yellow top recycling bin are taken to a Material Recovery Facility (MRF), operated by a private contractor. The materials are separated into different types. Recyclables are then sent away to be reprocessed and recycled.
