360 Litre Recycling Bin Trial
In order to increase the amount of materials recycled in the City, a trial of larger capacity recycling bins (360 litre) will be conducted. The objective is to increase household recycling capacity without increasing costs of extra weekly collections. The trial will initially target households that regularly find they do not have enough space to recycle all items in their existing 240 litre bins. Residents can register their interest in obtaining a bin with a 360 litre capacity on 9400 4255 or by email. When emailing please include your address, phone number and the number of residents at your property. To find out your recycling days, check the Domestic waste and recycling guide 2016/2017 .
Tree Lopper Services

Please be aware that the City of Joondalup does not have commercial agreements or relationships with tree loppers or any other contractor in relation to green waste collections. Residents should check with the City for accurate collection dates before placing material on their verge for collection.

No Glass Campaign
You may have noticed a 'No Glass in this bin' sticker on your green-lidded bin. Mindarie Regional Council, in conjunction with the City of Joondalup and three other local authorities in WA, are currently running a No Glass campaign. This campaign aims to reduce glass contamination in the general waste bin to improve recycling outcomes. The contents of your green-lidded bin are processed at the Resource Recovery Facility (RRF), where the organic content is composted into market quality soil enhancers or compost. The sticker should also have been accompanied by an explanatory leaflet in your letter box.
