(19/10/2017) Recycling Centre now open

The City of Fremantle’s improved and expanded recycling centre is open for business from tomorrow, with more capacity to recycle metal, batteries, clothes and even computers.

The revamped Montreal Street centre has an improved layout for easier access and will now be open from midday to 4pm on Fridays as well as 8am – 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

For the first time, residents will be able to drop off green waste, mattresses, slabs and pavers.

The City of Fremantle is also introducing a free home collection service for seniors.

Fremantle residents aged 65 and over will be able to contact the City to arrange the doorstep pick up of white goods, e-waste and mattresses.

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said the new recycling services would allow the City to achieve its goal of a 70 per cent recycling rate by 2020.

“We’re all about doing the right thing for ratepayers and the environment,” Mayor Pettitt said.

“As part of our One Planet commitments, the City of Fremantle is supporting the community to reduce waste generation by 10 per cent against 2015 levels by 2020.

“The new recycling centre and the home collection service will help us to achieve those targets and offer fantastic new services to the people of Fremantle.”
