Upgrade to bigger bin free
THE City of Kwinana is offering free recycling bin upgrades.
The City is offering free upgrades from 240L recycling bins to larger 360L ones to encourage recycling.
The free upgrades, which increase the size of the yellow-lid recycling bin by 50 per cent, can be requested from today, but may take up to 90 days to be delivered.
Mayor Carol Adams said the free upgrades formed part of the City’s broader waste strategy.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for residents to recycle right, which is why we’re making improvements to both our waste collection service and our waste education program,” she said.
“In the past 12 months, we’ve introduced a number of new initiatives, including the appointment of a dedicated Waste Education Officer and the introduction of community and school tours of the Regional Resource and Recovery Centre (RRRC).”
“We’re also looking at how we can gather information about recycling habits through a new bin-tagging program.”
The City introduced the larger 360L recycling bins in 2015, but this is the first time the upgrade has been offered at no cost.
Residents who previously paid for the upgrade may also be eligible for a refund and are encouraged to contact the City on 9439 0200 or via email@example.com.
