Other Disposal Options

For a full list which includes the items below please see the A-Z Waste list and select ‘2-bin system’.

Aerosol cans : Bring to the next Recycle Dropoff Morning  or drop off any time to Red Hill Waste Management Facility.

Aluminium lined UHT containers: These are not recyclable in your yellow lid bin so should go in your general waste bin.

Clothes or textiles: Take to op shops, sell them online, share with friends and place ragged ones in your general waste bin. If placed in the recycling bin, clothing can wrap around machinery at the recycling facility, causing delays and damage to equipment.

Garden waste or food waste: From August 2020 Town of Bassendean residents will receive a brand new FOGO (Food Organics, Garden Organics) bin to put all garden and kitchen food scraps into. This new bin will receive a lot of the material from your general waste bin which would otherwise go to landfill. Find out more by visiting the  FOGO page.

Until you receive your new bin, place garden and food waste into your general waste bin or set up a home compost, Bokashi or worm farm. 

Gas bottles: These are considered Household Hazardous Waste as they can explode, check here for drop off locations. 

Hazardous waste: Items such as batteries, paint, chemicals, aerosols, engine coolant and fluoro globes and tubes can be disposed of for free at one of the following collection points

Meat trays: Due to contamination of meat trays and the materials used to make them, they should be placed in your general waste bin.

Mobile Phone: No electronics should ever go into your kerbside bins. Take these to the Town of Bassendean Library (along with household batteries, mobile batteries, printer cartridges, light globes and unwanted spectacles).

Nappies: Place in your general waste bin or make the switch to modern cloth nappies. Visit the Australian Nappy Association for more information.

Polystyrene: Bring to the next Recycle Dropoff Morning  or drop off any time to Claw Environmental, 5 Forge St, Welshpool.

Ropes, cables or garden hose pipes: Place them in your red-lid bin. They are not recyclable. They are difficult to separate and damage equipment. 

Soft plastics and plastic bags: Collect your bubble wrap, chip packets and other scrunchable items for disposal at major supermarkets. Visit https://www.redcycle.net.au/. Avoid buying plastic in the first place, buy food in bulk or take your own container.
