The City of Wanneroo’s annual Community Waste Drop-Off Day will be held on Saturday 17 April 2021.

Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said the City was committed to providing residents with opportunities to reduce, reuse and recycle waste.

"Last year we collected 1,000 tyres, 9.3 tonnes of electronic waste (e-waste), and 5.6 tonnes of clothing,” she said. 

"That is an incredible amount of waste that was saved from landfill.

"This is the perfect opportunity to dispose of waste that does not belong in household bins. Many of these items can be recycled and given new life.”

Residents can discard a range of items including tyres, e-waste, clothing, bulk cardboard and polystyrene.
