Managing waste wisely

Free greenwaste drop off for National Recycling Week 2023

A pile of branches and other greenwaste at the West Metro Recycling Centre

From November 13-19, Member and Participating Council* residents can bring their greenwaste to the West Metro Recycling Centre for free!

By taking your garden trimmings to the Recycling Centre, you’ll be closing the loop on waste and ensuring this organic material is recycled and kept out of landfill, where it would release greenhouse gases such as methane as it breaks down. Instead, your greenwaste is transformed into mulch via a 12-week aerobic composting process. It can then be collected for free to go back on your garden, and the cycle continues.

*Town of Claremont, Town of Cottesloe, Town of Mosman Park, Shire of Peppermint Grove, City of Subiaco, Town of Cambridge and City of Nedlands
