Recycling Programs

Kerb side recycling

The City provides residents with a fortnightly recycling collection. The 240 litre mobile bin is the current standard bin size and has a yellow lid. Collections take place from Monday to Friday. Your recycling area is listed on the Rubbish & Recycling Calendar as either Area 1 or Area 2. Please make sure all recyclables are clean and all food and liquid are removed before putting them in the bin. Everything should be loose and not in plastic bags.

More information is available on the Kerb Side Collection page.

Verge side recycling

The City of South Perth also provides one hard waste and two green waste verge side collections per year. It is requested that residents place hard waste on their own verge in separate piles, such as metals, whitegoods, mattresses, e-waste and then general waste to reduce the volume of recyclable items going to landfill. 

More information is available on the Verge Side Collection page.

FREE recycling at the Collier Park Waste Transfer Station

In addition to fortnightly recycling and the verge side service, the City accepts a number of recyclable items FREE of charge at the Collier Park Waste Transfer Station if separated from general waste loads. Items include E-Waste, cardboard and other paper, scrap metal, light globes and others.

Old mobile phones and batteries

Household dry cell batteries contain valuable metals such as zinc, manganese and steel which are found in limited supply. Separating and recycling batteries reduces the incidence of these metals becoming designated to landfill and prevents the contamination of compost at alternative waste treatment plants.

You can recycle your batteries at the following locations:

  • Administration Centre - Cnr Sandgate St and South Tce, South Perth
  • George Burnett Leisure Centre - Manning Rd, Manning
  • City of South Perth Operations Centre - 199 Thelma St, Como.

The South Perth and Manning Libraries also have recycling stations for the disposal of old mobile phones, printer cartridges (please remove packaging) and household dry cell batteries at the following locations:

  • Manning Library - Manning Rd, Manning
  • South Perth Library - Cnr Sandgate St and South Tce, South Perth.
