What Happens to Your Waste

1/06/2018

In general most people do not think about what happens to their waste once their bin is emptied by the truck. However, recent media stories around Australia have shone a light on this topic.

Here's what happens in the City of Rockingham:

  • Waste bin (red lid) – the contents of the waste bin are buried at the Millar Road Landfill.
  • Recycling bin (yellow lid) – SUEZ collect and process recyclables at their Material Recovery Facility in Bibra Lake.
  • Green Waste bin (green lid) – SUEZ collect and compost the garden waste in North Bannister.

 City of Rockingham residents can now see what happens to the contents of their bins in this handy downloadable infographic.
