EAST Fremantle residents will be able to use the recycling centre in Fremantle.

Residents can come to the centre to dispose of a wide array of recyclable material, including cardboard, polystyrene, white goods, scrap metal and e-waste.

A letter with information about the new services, along with a brochure advising what can and can’t be recycled, will be mailed out to East Fremantle households shortly.

Residents are advised to keep hold of the letter, bring it along with them when dropping off household bulk waste and have it stamped by centre staff.

Town of East Fremantle Mayor Jim O’Neill said to date the town has had very positive feedback about the change.

“Residents now have somewhere to take their hard-to-dispose-of goods, such as paint, batteries etc,” he said.

“The Town really appreciated the co-operation of Brad (mayor) and the team at Fremantle – the recycle centre is such a great service.

“East Fremantle residents will also be entitled to four drop-offs of bulk waste per year.”

Mr O Neill said the council didn’t have any additional waste services proposed at this time, but would be happy to work with their neighbours in the future.
