The City of Ar­madale has a Drop'n'Shop fa­cil­ity at the tip where peo­ple can take re­us­able items in­stead of plac­ing them in land­fill.

Ratepay­ers are charged for waste re­moval and re­cy­cling ser­vices, so Ar­madale Mayor Henry Zelones en­cour­aged peo­ple to re­use items and com­post.

He said the cost of putting waste in land­fill was more than the cost of re­cy­cling, and mov­ing waste around in­curred ad­di­tional trans­port costs.

The Shire of Ser­pen­tine-Jar­rah­dale dis­posed of 8400 tonnes of waste on be­half of res­i­dents in the last fi­nan­cial year, and 2300 tonnes of re­cy­cling was pro­cessed.
