Perth Community Waste Management Initiatives

E-Waste

Don’t throw it away in just any old bin! It’s your choice if your items end up in landfill – Choose to dispose of your old, broken, unused or unwanted electrical equipment by sending them to a facilitator in the waste management stream. Your local participating University, Council or Business may be championing the cause.

Earth Carer’s Program

This program is based on a similar program in NSW and is now supported by 3 Regional Councils in Metropolitan WA. Did you know that all local councils are part of a Regional Council? The Earth carers program is a unique initiative which aims to increase the Community’s knowledge of waste issues, including waste minimisation and management and increase household community skills with waste minimisation. Some insights into waste management which the program covers include composting, worm farming, what happens to waste and recyclables locally and in the wider metropolitan region, and they provide practical and easy methods of reducing waste at home.
