Test­ing its metal

Joondalup Weekender - - Front Page -

THE Wan­gara Greens Re­cy­cling Fa­cil­ity is ac­cept­ing scrap metal for re­cy­cling as part of a three-month trial.

The City of Wan­neroo trial will gauge in­ter­est for the free ser­vice, with res­i­dents able to drop off steel or alu­minium cans, fence or roof sheet­ing, car rims and old hot wa­ter sys­tems.

Peo­ple can also drop off do­mes­tic pots and pans, steel or alu­minium fur­ni­ture, steel pipes and some white goods, with the vol­ume limited to one stan­dard trailer load per res­i­dent.

Fridges, gas bot­tles and fire ex­tin­guish­ers are not per­mit­ted at Wan­gara, but can be dropped off for free at the Ta­mala Park or Bal­catta re­cy­cling cen­tres to be safely de­gassed prior to re­cy­cling.

The col­lec­tion of scrap metal is in ad­di­tion to house­hold and car bat­ter­ies, compact flu­o­res­cent light globes, bulk card­board, used mo­tor oil, mo­bile phones and ink printer car­tridges.

These items can all be dropped off free of charge.

The fa­cil­ity also ac­cepts clean green waste from the pub­lic and cre­ates mulch for re­sale.

Res­i­dents need the voucher in­cluded with their an­nual rates no­tice to dis­pose of green waste, as well as col­lect mulch.

The fa­cil­ity is open for drop-off on week­ends from 8am to 4.45pm at 70 Mo­ti­va­tion Drive, Wan­gara.
