Services

Perthwaste Green Recycling provides the following services to the City of Canning:

  • Recyclables processing

What happens to your recycling?

After your recycling bin is emptied, collection trucks bring recyclables to the Perthwaste Materials Recovery Facility. 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.
