Shire of Capel
Perthwaste Green Recycling provides the following services to the Shire of Capel:
- Recyclables processing
What happens to your recycling?
After your 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:
- Aluminium cans
Once separated, the different streams are baled (except glass) and sent for remanufacturing into new products.
