Recycle BinAll Cottesloe residents are provided with a 240L Recycle Bin with a yellow lid. It is a co-mingled service. This means that all recyclable materials can be placed loosely (not in plastic bags) together in the bin.

Your Recycle Bin will be emptied fortnightly on the weeks that the Greens Bin is not emptied. In effect, most residents will have only two bins out for collection every week. The yellow shaded dates in the Waste and Sustainability calendar (which is provided to Cottesloe households free of charge at the start of each year) indicate Recycle Bin collection week. A copy of the calendar can be obtained from the Town of Cottesloe Civic Centre. If you have enquiries about collection dates and weeks, please don't hesitate to contact the Town on 9285 5000.
