Household Hazardous Waste Program

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) includes unwanted household products that contain chemicals or substances that can be harmful to you, your family, your pets, or the environment, and they should not be put in your kerbside rubbish bins.

While the Watkins Road Waste Transfer Station and Recycling Centre do not accept HHW, you may safely dispose of your unwanted household chemicals and hazardous materials for FREE at any of the 15 HHW Permanent Facilities in WA or drop off day events listed on WasteNet.

The Shire's nearest HHW facility is the Armadale Landfill and Recycling Facility. You do not need to be a resident of the Local Government managing the HHW Facilities to be able to drop off your HHW for free, but remember they can only accept domestic quantities of materials (no larger than 20kg/20L per material type). For more information on what you can and cannot take and how to dispose of safely and responsibly see:

PaintBack Scheme

Paint contains chemicals such as solvents and metals that can contaminate our groundwater and have negative effects on human health. Paint recycling reduces these impacts as well as the costs associated with hazardous-waste disposal. Paintback takes unwanted paint and packaging's colourful past to a brighter future of responsible disposal and innovative reuse and is committed to researching new ways to repurpose unwanted paint materials.

The Shire's nearest Paintback collection point is the Armadale Landfill and Recycling Facility.  It is a free scheme to drop off your unwanted paint products regardless of where you reside.  To find out more visit:
