Our Team

The WMRC and its staff continue to be committed to promoting good waste practices in the community, in line with the waste hierarchy of Avoid, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Dispose.

Chief Executive Officer

The WMRC is led by Chief Executive Officer, Stefan Frodsham and Senior Management Team in the areas of Operations, Communications & Education and Finance & Governance.

Stefan Frodsham, Chief Executive Officer


The WMRC operates the West Metro Recycling Centre in Shenton Park, which received around 31,000 tonnes of waste and recyclables in 2017-18 from councils, commercial customers and residents. We improve the efficiency of household waste transport by consolidating loads for transport to distant sites.

Communications and Education

The Communications and Education team has continued to focus activities towards making good waste practices normal in the western suburbs. This has involved increased work directly supporting Member Council staff and community event organisers on a range of projects including bin tagging and event waste minimisation. The team also provides regular workshops and courses to assist residents in minimising their household waste and recycling and disposing items correctly.
