Recycling

Recycling is taken to the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) in Bibra Lake via the Perthwaste Recyclables Transfer Station in Picton.

What happens to your recycling?

After your recycling bin is emptied, collection trucks bring recyclables to the Perthwaste Recyclables Transfer Station in Picton. Recyclables collected throughout the south-west are consolidated, then transferred in large trucks to the Perthwaste Materials Recovery Facility in Bibra Lake (20km south of Perth).

Once at the Recycling Centre, the recyclables are unloaded into an area called the “tipping floor”.

From the tipping floor, recyclables are placed onto a conveyor belt to commence processing. Recyclables are then sorted by MRF machinery or by hand into “material streams” of:

  • Glass
  • Paper
  • Steel
  • Plastic
  • Aluminium cans

Once separated, the different streams are baled (except glass) and sent for remanufacturing into new products.
