  • GENERAL WASTE BIN

    Your general waste (green lid) bin is for general household waste. The organic content is composted and the non organic residual waste is sent to landfill.

    GENERAL WASTE BIN

    What you CAN place in your general waste (green lid) bin

    What you CANNOT place in your general waste (green lid) bin

    Glass

    Hot or burning ash

    Old tyres

    Asbestos

    Batteries

    Bricks, concrete, sand and other building materials

    Household hazardous waste (pesticides, herbicides and other dangerous chemicals, combustible liquid, paint or other solvents, motor oil)

    General household waste

    Broken shoes, old rags

    Your general waste (green lid) bin is collected and transported to the Resource Recovery Facility.

    NO GLASS Whole or broken

    If glass is placed in the green lid bin, during the composting process the glass is crushed and it remains in the compost preventing it from becoming a usable soil enhancer. Glass should be placed in the yellow lid recycling bin so that it can be recycled.

    At the Resource Recovery Facility all organic contents such as garden waste, food scraps, cotton or textiles are composted.

    The No Glass campaign is coordinated by Mindarie Regional Council covering 170,000 households across four member councils; City of Joondalup, City of Wanneroo, City of Vincent and Town of Victoria Park.

    The remaining non organic contents of your green lid bin is sent to landfill.
