City of Bunbury’s Waste Strategy

Reducing waste and preserving our environment is one of the City of Bunbury’s major priorities.
The City of Bunbury is aligned with the State’s Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030, which provides a long-term strategy for continuous improvement of waste management benchmarked against best practice. It includes targets for waste avoidance, resource recovery and environmental protection, including the diversion of waste disposed to landfill.

Our goal is to make it easy for you to compost food organics and garden organics, recycle, and divert e-waste, hard waste and chemicals from landfill while discovering, promoting and educating on opportunities to further achieve low-waste living.

Bunbury was the first Local Government in Western Australia to introduce the three-bin FOGO system in 2013 and has shown consistently high performance thereafter.

Waste Management Facility

The Waste Management Facility (aka the tip) is located on Stanley Road, Australind. The facility is managed by Bunbury Harvey Regional Council and is open 8am to 5pm every day except Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and Good Friday.
