Using your kerbside bins

As the population in Western Australia grows, so does the amount of waste generated. Everyone can take simple actions to follow the 3 R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – and keep waste out of landfill.

One easy way to do your bit is by separating waste correctly into your kerbside bins. This ensures recyclable items aren’t contaminated.

Do you know what items can go in each of your kerbside bins? Find out in the A-Z Waste Guide.
