Yellow Top Bin

Cities of Fremantle, Melville, Kwinana and Town of East Fremantle:

Contents of your yellow topped bin will be sorted and baled at the Regional Resource Recovery Centre and sold for reprocessing.

All items should be clean, dry and empty with lids removed and placed in the bin loosely, not in a plastic bag. This includes:

    • Aluminium cans (clean and empty)
    • Steel cans (clean and empty)
    • Cardboard (flattened)
    • Paper (excluding shredded paper)
    • Plastic containers and bottles (clean and empty)
    • Glass (clean and empty)


Once separated and baled, these items are made into new products both in Australia and overseas.

If you live in any of these councils, there have been some changes to the items you are able to place into your yellow topped recycling bin.

For more information about the changes, please visit Changes to Recycling.
