City of South Perth residents and property owners can dispose of additional waste and recycling at the City of South Perth Recycling Centre (formerly known as Collier Park Waste Transfer Station).
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 with the rates notices.
The vouchers entitle the ratepayer to dispose of two payloads of green waste and one payload of general waste per year.
To use, tear off the whole entry voucher and present it in full to the attendant at the Recycling Centre.
Please note the following:
- Your assessment number and barcode is printed on the entry voucher
- Once you have used your voucher you will not be able to get a second voucher
- You will not be able to receive a replacement voucher if it is lost. Please keep it in a safe place
- Occupiers who are not owners or do not pay a rubbish levy are not entitled to receive an entry voucher
- Occupiers will need to obtain the voucher from the property owner or pay to use the Recycling Centre
- Only valid entry vouchers will be accepted.
The gate attendant’s assessment of the voucher and load will be final.
Accepted payload size for entry voucher
Payloads should be no bigger than a level trailer (6x4) and less than 250kg. A fee will apply if an entry voucher is not presented at the Recycling Centre gate, or for any payload considered larger than the maximum payload size.

Disposal of Polystyrene
Expanded polystyrene (EPS), or polystyrene foam, is a white light-weight and bulky material that is often difficult to dispose of in your general bin. This material is often used in packaging for furniture or electronic goods, often together with cardboard. Polystyrene can be recycled at Recycling Centre free of charge.
