Kwinana Bin a GREAT Sort Program

The City of Kwinana’s ‘Bin a GREAT Sort’ Program’ (BGS) is a residential waste and community education program that aims to:

  • Reduce the amount of waste going to landfill

  • Reduce contamination in recycling and waste bins

  • Improve the recycling habits of households

  • Reduce the amount of money the council spends on waste disposal fee’s (savings which would ultimately be passed onto you, the ratepayer).

  • Protect waste industry workers, trucks, infrastructure from serious harm

To improve the recycling habits of residents and reduce contamination in waste and recycling bins, we are launching the Kwinana ‘Bin a GREAT Sort’ Program.


There are GREAT Sorts in Kwinana

Your landfill bin is the last place for waste. With a bit of waste sorting at home, it could be empty each week! There are many GREAT Sorts on every street in Kwinana who put 60% less waste into their landfill bin by doing these five GREAT things:

  • G is for Gifting things to charity, swapping or selling. 
  • R is for Recycling only these 5 things: Metal cans, cardboard, paper, glass and plastic (bottles, jars and containers) 
  • E is for Earth-cycling food scraps and garden waste into compost. 
  • A is for Avoiding excess packaging and disposable containers. 
  • T is for Taking soft plastics, batteries, e-waste and chemicals to local drop-off points.
