More room for recycling
AN upgraded recycling centre is expected to give Fremantle residents access to a bigger and better recycling service.
The City of Fremantle has doubled the size of its Montreal Street recycling centre, enabling it to take in more recycling metal, batteries, TVs and computers.
A new free home collection service will also be available to residents aged over 65, in addition to the annual verge collection.
Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said residents could now also drop off green waste, mattresses and clean bricks, slabs and pavers.
"As part of our One Planet commitments, the City of Fremantle is supporting the community to reduce waste generation by 10 per cent against 2015 levels by 2020," he said.
"We have also embarked upon a City-wide waste reduction strategy with the goal of achieving a 70 per cent recycling rate by 2020.
"The new recycling centre and the home collection service will help us to achieve those targets while also offering fantastic new services to the people of Fremantle."
The centre is open from noon to 4pm Fridays and 8am to 4pm Saturdays and Sundays.
