City of South Perth Recycling Centre

News Update 16 January 2017

The City of South Perth opened its Recycling Centre in December 1986. Recognising the importance of a sustainable approach to waste management, the centre’s major focus is on reducing waste to landfill and supporting recycling of materials.

After 30 years of operation, Collier Park Waste Transfer Station has had a name change and is now called the City of South Perth Recycling Centre.

The change also coincides with the Centre's new-look 2017 Waste and Recycling Guide. The annual publication will replace the Spring and Autumn verge side collection brochures and acts as a handy fridge magnet to help keep track of your kerb side and verge side collection dates.

The Recycling Centre will continue its focus on reducing waste to landfill and supporting recycling.

Over 500 FREE green waste recycling bags have been handed out since September 2016 at the Recycling Centre. Bags filled with green waste or recyclable material can be dropped off at the Centre free of charge. Once collected, these materials are shredded and composted into garden mulch, which is also available free of charge for residents. Please note the bags are available for residents only, not commercial operators. 

As part of the annual rubbish levy, ratepayers receive three entry vouchers for the Recycling Centre. These are sent out at the beginning of each financial year, attached to the rates notices. The vouchers entitle the ratepayer to dispose of two payloads of green waste and one payload of general waste per year.
