Millar Road Recycling Facility

The recycling yard is open to the public and recyclable material in residential quantities can be dropped off free of charge, depending on the types and condition of the material. Only items deemed acceptable by landfill staff will be received in the recycling yard free of charge. All other rubbish may incur a fee.

To assist the City of Rockingham in reducing waste to landfill and increasing recycling, please separate all recycling from general waste loads before coming to the landfill. Recyclables are unloaded first.

The following items are accepted free of charge (subject to the acceptance of landfill staff):

  • cardboard - compacted (compactor available on site)
  • polystyrene, excluding seedling drainage squares - compacted (compactor available on site)
  • clear film and bubble wrap plastics - compacted (compactor available on site)
  • gas bottles, car batteries and motor oil (max 20 litres)
  • pavers
  • all scrap metal, including fridges, washing machines and microwaves
  • other items accepted at landfill staff discretion.

Prunings brought to the green waste area by residents and the verge collections are recycled into mulch. This mulch is available free to the public, however residents are responsible for loading it themselves. Contact Waste Services on 9528 8550 to check availability of the mulch.

Household chemicals and paints can be disposed of through the Hazardous Household Waste program or Paintback paint recycling program. Please see the Hazardous Substances page for more information.
