West Metro Recycling Centre Community Tour

Past Event

Ever wondered what happens with your waste once it's picked up from the verge? Or thought about where to take items that can't go in any of your household bins? 
Find out at a community tour of your local West Metro Recycling Centre in Shenton Park! See for yourself how a transfer station operates and the different community recycling services we offer local residents.
What will be covered:
  • The history of Perth landfills and waste disposal
  • The purpose of transfer stations in recovery of residual, green and Food Organics Garden Organics (FOGO) waste.
  • Disposal options for household waste including the recycling and recovery processes for cardboard, e-waste, bulk polystyrene, plastic plant pot, bicycles, x-ray, white goods, cooking oil, mattress, scrap metal recycling, and more, and the different local organisations we partner with to make it happen!
  • Government and industry initiatives that exist so that you can safely dispose of hazardous and problematic household items like paint, poisons, pesticides, flares, batteries, fluorescent tubes, fire extinguishers, electronic waste and more for free at the Recycling Centre.
Wear: Fully enclosed footwear, hat and sunscreen. Bring your own water bottle.
Tour: Your tour involves walking around an active site outdoors. A reasonable level of fitness is required. Your tour will be followed by time for questions, a cuppa or coffee and light refreshments.
