Perthwaste Green Recycling has commenced a long-term contract to collect and process kerbside recycling and greenwaste in the City of Stirling.
The contract which commenced on 28 June 2015, marks the introduction of recycling and greenwaste services in the City of Stirling; where households will go from a single bin up to three bins (depending on property size).
Perthwaste General Manager, Mr Brad Gornall said, “We are pleased to be partnering with the City of Stirling to deliver its new waste system focused on resource recovery.”
“Our unique position in the Western Australian market enables us to deliver the City a full service solution covering collection, receival, processing and the sale of recyclables and compost”, he said.
Mr Gornall explained that “All recycling collected will be processed at the Perthwaste Materials Recovery Facility in Bibra Lake and all greenwaste collected will be composted at Perthwaste’s North Bannister Resource Recovery Facility.”
With a population over 220,000, this is the largest kerbside collection contract in Western Australia.
Perthwaste’s Branch Manager (North), Mr David Healy said, “To support the City of Stirling contract, we are establishing a Northern Depot, have purchased 15 new trucks and employed a number of people from the local area”.
The commencement of the City of Stirling contract strengthens Perthwaste Green Recycling’s position as a provider of choice for local government kerbside collection and processing services.
