Three wheelie bins for recycling and waste

Consultation has concluded

Three wheelie bins

August 2019

The Town of Bassendean has decided to introduce three bins by July 2020 -- one bin each for rubbish, recyclables, and food/garden waste.

Why?

We’re trying to reduce the amount of waste we produce and the amount that goes to landfill. To standardise waste management, the WA Government has set targets for adoption of the 3-bin system across all local governments in the Perth and Peel regions by 2025. We recognise this is a big change in the way we organise our waste and can only be achieved through your help and understanding.

What do the bin colours mean?

You will have three bins:

Red lid bin: General household waste that goes to the landfill

Yellow lid bin: Recyclable waste such as glass, paper and recyclable plastics

Light Green lid bin : Food organics and garden organics which becomes compost.

For more information, see the frequently asked questions.

Look for Council’s waste education stall at the Old Perth Road Markets on the last Sunday of each month and at the Hawaiian Shopping Centre on 13 August and 22 August.
