Waste & Recycling Calendar 2022/23

Did you know cooking oil (small amounts) can go in your Green-lidded FOGO Bin? Or that rinsed shampoo bottles can go in your Yellow-lidded Bin?

Need a little reminder about what goes where when it comes to sorting your waste correctly at home?

We’ve got you covered with deliveries arriving soon of the 2022/23 Waste & Recycling Guide.

As well as a handy reference for bin days, you’ll find inside complete A-Z lists of items that belong in your Green, Yellow and Red-lidded bins plus a few additional tips to Recycle right.

And don’t forget, if you would like additional help with sorting your waste, you can phone our Waste Contractor Veolia (formerly Suez) on 1800 260 033 to organise a home visit.

Certified compostable liners

Just a little reminder! Make sure you are using Certified compostable liners in your FOGO kitchen caddy.

They carry the seedling logo, are made from natural materials, break down easily and can be composted.

Biodegradable, degradable or plastic bags don’t break down and will contaminate the resulting compost.

Alternatives to a liner include homemade newspaper liners or placing food scraps loose in the kitchen caddy.

Little habits like these will help ensure we reduce our FOGO contamination rate by another 5% by the end of the year.

Lids off. Rinse. Keep it loose.

Easy Recycling Reminders. These small changes will help ensure we reduce the level of contamination in our recycling and divert more waste from landfill.

About 25% of material collected from Yellow-lidded Recycling Bins each week goes to landfill instead of being recycled due to contamination. That’s a big improvement on previous years but we still think we can do even better.

Community Recycling Stations

We make it easier for you to recycle along with helping ensure household hazardous waste is disposed of correctly via our 5 handy Community Recycling Stations.

Drop off batteries, plastic bottletops and bulbs to one of the locations:

  • Administration Centre, Eaton
  • Eaton Recreation Centre
  • Eaton Community Library
  • Dardanup Office
  • Shire of Dardanup Depot

We’re saving you a trip out to the Stanley Road Waste Management Facility’s large Recycling Station where we’ll be regularly transferring our drop-offs to.

Batteries and bulbs fall into the category of Household Hazardous Waste and if not disposed of correctly, pose both a health and environment threat. They don’t belong in your Red-lidded general waste bin.

And plastic bottletops can be recycled but not by the processors who collect your kerbside yellow-topped recycling bin. They need to go to a different processor so drop them off at one of our Recycling Stations.
