Recycling efforts in Kwinana are set to soar after the City announced today it will offer free upgrades from 240litre recycling bins to the larger 360litre variants.
The free upgrades, which increase the size of the yellow-lid recycling bin by 50%, can be requested from today, but may take up to 90 days to be delivered.
Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said the free upgrades formed part of the City’s broader waste strategy.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for residents to recycle right, which is why we’re making improvements to both our waste collection service and our waste education program,” Mayor Adams said.
“In the past 12 months we’ve introduced a number of new initiatives, including the appointment of a dedicated Waste Education Officer and the introduction of community and school tours of the Regional Resource and Recovery Centre (RRRC).”
“We’re also looking at how we can gather information about recycling habits through a new bin tagging program.”
The City introduced the larger 360L recycling bins in 2015, but this is the first time the upgrade has been offered at zero cost.
Residents who previously paid for the upgrade may also be eligible for a refund and are encouraged to contact the City on 9439 0200 or via firstname.lastname@example.org
