New recycling centre opened in Western Australia

New recycling centre opened in Western Australia

The City of Swan’s recycling centre has officially opened, using recycled products in the construction of its new facility.

Opening the Bullsbrook Recycling Centre last week, Western Australian Government Environment Minister Stephen Dawson praised the city for its environmentally sound design.

All the roads and hardstands within the recycling centre were built using recycled road base materials and the on-site sheds have been re-used from the previous property owners.

The recycling centre, located between the Bullsbrook and Ellenbrook town centres, will provide the community with a year-round facility to sort, recycle and re-use unwanted bulk items and waste materials.  It will be free for all City of Swan residents.

It forms the first stage of what will become a sustainable hub for the area including a tip shop, community workshops, community gardens and education centre.

“This new facility will help reduce the amount of material picked up in verge bulk collections and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill,” said Environment Minister Stephen Dawson.

“This facility is a great example of collaboration between the State and local governments, providing fit-for-purpose infrastructure to the community.”
