Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)

​​Hazardous waste can be disposed of for free at several locations. Please see the Program Flye​​​​r​​ for details.

Aerosol cans

Empty aerosol cans may be handed to our Customer Service Officers at the City of Kwinana Administration Office or City Operations Depot during office hours. The City's waste contractor will regularly collect the aerosols and deliver them to a Hazardous Waste facility for recycling. 

Aerosol cans can also be recycled through the Household Hazardous Waste Program and the closest collection points are located at Henderson Waste Recovery Park or Millar Road Landfill and Recycling Facility. There is no cost to drop them at any facility.

Please note that only empty aerosol cans will be accepted.   

​​Recycle Hubs

Recycle Hubs are located at the Darius Wells Library and Resource Centre and Kwinana Marketplace (near Coles).

Household batteries, printer cartridges, mobile phones and chargers, and household light bulbs can be placed in the hubs where they are recycled by Total Green Recycling and Planet Ark.

Household batteries must not be placed in either kerbside bin. Batteries can also be delivered to any facility that accepts Household Hazardous Waste​.​​​

Electronic Waste (e-waste)​

Electronic waste must not be placed in either kerbside bin. E-waste is recycled through the Bulk Verge Collection twice per year. For dates of collection please refer to the online m​ap​​ or refer to your Verge Collection Brochure​​.  

For disposal information outside of collection times contact Total Green Recycling

​Meat trays and take-away containers

Generally, due to confusion around what materials meat trays are made from, we advise you to avoid putting meat trays into the recycling bin. Clean take-away containers that are made of plastic or paper can be disposed of in the yellow topped recycle bin.​

Own Your Impact​

The State Government have developed the website Own Your Impact to encourage behaviour change.  


Large pieces of polystyrene packaging can be taken to Henderson Waste Recovery Park or Millar Road Landfill and Recycling Facility. Small pieces can be placed in the green topped waste bin.

Soft/Flexible Plastics​

Please collect your soft plastics separately and drop them in a Redcycle bin located at Coles and Woolworths supermarkets. Soft plastics are recycled into plastic park furniture, fencing, decking, bollards and more. Redcycle bins in Kwinana are located at:

  • Woolworths Kwinana, Kwinana Marketplace, 4 Chisham Avenue, Kwinana
  • Coles Kwinana, Kwinana Marketplace, 4 Chisham Avenue, Kwinana
  • Woolworths Wellard, 15 The Strand, Wellard​
