Southern Metropolitan Regional Council HQ


The Southern Metropolitan Regional Council (SMRC) is a statutory local government authority established in 1991 by local governments in the southern part of metropolitan Perth. The SMRC is responsible for delivering innovative and sustainable waste management solutions for the benefit of our communities and the environment.

Our community is:

    • Town of East Fremantle
    • City of Fremantle
    • City of Kwinana
    • City of Melville

The SMRC region encompasses 195 square kilometres within Perth’s southern metropolitan area and has a combined population of over 190,000 people.

The SMRC operates a state of the art $100 million Regional Resource Recovery Centre (RRRC) in Canning Vale, which receives, recycles, and processes waste from some of its member local governments and the community.

The SMRC is committed to assisting the State Government to work towards its targets of diversion of waste from landfill. It employs 45 staff and provides work for 100 local small businesses and contractors each month.
