Managing waste wisely

Claremont residents ready to recycle!

Claremont residents are encouraged to place difficult waste in the right place and recycle it as part of the Town of Claremont and Western Metropolitan Regional Council’s free Community Recycling Drop Off Day.

At the Saturday 14 November event, Town of Claremont residents can drop off a wide range of recyclables that aren’t suited to kerbside recycling.  “Claremont’s residents are pretty proactive when it comes to recycling,” Mayor Barker said. “But I’m sure I’m not alone in having old items hanging around at home that can’t be recycled through the recycling bin.”

“Community Recycling Drop Off Days are a great reminder that even some of the most difficult items can be recycled, and that the right support is here on our doorstep.”

“Working with the Town of Claremont to host this Community Recycling Drop Off Day is a great way to further support Claremont residents to manage their waste wisely.” WMRC CEO Stefan Frodsham said.

“Keeping items that need specialist recycling out of kerbside bins is really important to reduce bin contamination, minimise environmental damage and increase resource recovery. Everybody wins when waste goes in the right place!”

E-waste, cardboard, bulk polystyrene, batteries, aerosols, clothing, indoor furniture (please no mattresses or child safety products) , bric-a-brac and x-rays can all be dropped off free of charge at the Town of Claremont Council Carpark between 9am and 1pm on the day.

Outside of this annual event, Claremont residents can make use of the West Metro Recycling Centre to dispose of a variety of additional items. Residents can also call the Recycling Hotline on 9384 6711 to find out which items are accepted at the Community Recycling Drop Off Day and at the West Metro Recycling Centre.

The Western Metropolitan Regional Council operates the West Metro Recycling Centre and manages waste wisely for the Town of Claremont, Town of Cottesloe, Town of Mosman Park, City of Subiaco, the Shire of Peppermint Grove with the Town of Cambridge.
