Recycling drop-off station

****Please note changes to our accepted items list below******

We have a recycling drop off station outside Enviro House where you can bring:

  • Plastic bottle caps up to 5cm in diameter. These must be clean with the white seal disc removed. Please sort these correctly into colours in advance (dark blue, light blue, dark green, light green, white, black, red and all other colours together) or into the appropriate coloured bin when dropping off. Please note: we no longer accept plastic flip top lids (common on cosmetic bottles)
  • Metal bottle caps and jar lids both aluminium and steel. Please sort into aluminium and steel.
  • Pens and marker pens
  • Oral care items - now including electric toothbrush heads, electric toothbrushes and chargers.
  • Bread tags
  • Plastic flower pots (which we also encourage you to take and reuse if you have things to plant)
  • Plant information labels and tags

Where is it all going to be recycled?

Where possible we have tried to find local options for some of the items that can be recycled closer to home or that can't be processed by curbside recycling. Our volunteers will be dispatching items to the following:

Precious Plastic Perth

Recycles plastic to create sustainable products to make our planet cleaner. This Perth based organisation also takes many other plastic items, which we are not able to collect here, and have drop off sites in Malaga and Welshpool. Find out more at www.preciousplasticperth.com.au

Terracycle

TerraCycle reuses, upcycles and recycles waste instead of incinerating or landfilling it. We collect pens and markers, oral care, and coffee pods to send to TerraCycle though their targeted recycling programs. Find out more at www.terracycle.com. You might even find a free recycling
option for your workplace or organisation.

SIMS Metal Management

We are collecting metal bottle caps and lids to take to SIMS Metal Management in Malaga for recycling. You can also drop off scrap metal direct to SIMS and they offer free recycling for televisions and e-waste. Find out more at www.simsmm.com.au

Greenbatch

Greenbatch aims to build WA's first plastic reprocessing plant, turning PET plastic bottles into 3D printing filament for schools to build and create with. Find out more about Greenbatch drop off days in Mount Claremont and the items they collect and recycle at www.greenbatch.com

Aussie Bread Tags for Wheelchairs

A community program where individuals and organisations collect bread tags to raise money to pay for wheelchairs for those in need in South Africa. Tags from some states are still sent to South Africa, where they are sold and turned mainly into seedling trays, but they are now also going to Transmutation in Robe, South Australia who recycle the tags into products such as door knobs and bowls.

Envision Hands Project

The Envision Hands project recycles plastic bottle lids bound for landfill and turns them into colourful, super hero hands for children in need in Australia and around the world! Find out more at www.envision.org.au
