Welcome to Watch your Waste, the City’s community engagement platform page for all things related to waste and recycling!

Let’s face it, we produce a lot of waste. Every week or fortnight we fill our wheelie bins and roll them out to the kerb to be emptied. But we all know that waste doesn’t just “go away”. It has to be dealt with and there are many processes involved in dealing with waste which is typically something most people don’t discuss or know much about. So we want to get the conversation started, we want to know your thoughts, ideas, and feedback on waste issues so we can all be better informed about waste in our community.

Check the News Feed section below for any changes or news worthy items in waste. Look to the "Tell us your ideas" tab to share your ideas on waste initiatives you would like to see supported within the City of Busselton. Or refer to the Q & A section to ask us a question you have about waste or recycling.

    Due to economic pressures resulting from the COVID-19 health crisis, the City of Busselton has decided to end the FOGO trial (lime green lid wheelie bin) in Provence. The last day of collection of FOGO bins will be tomorrow (Wed 1 April).

    The City’s waste team will commence tapping up those bins after they have been emptied. Residents are requested not to use the bin after they have been emptied.

    At this stage, we are not retrieving the bins because the decision is only to suspend the trial, albeit for an unknown period of time given the current circumstances with COVID-19.

    Thanks to all the residents in Provence for their cooperation. We’ll be undertaking broader consultation with the community at a later date to determine whether the system will be adopted and expanded more broadly.
