Rubbish & Recycling Collection Days

The Shire provides a 120 litre bin kerbside collection service for the town sites of Kondinin, Karlgarin and Hyden. General Rubbish Bins are emptied each Monday. Recycle bins are emptied in Kondinin on Tuesdays fortnightly and Hyden and Karlgarin on Tuesdays on the alternate fortnight. Residents are advised to place their bins with the wheels away from the kerb the evening before collection.  These services are provided by Avon Waste, to check out there website http://www.avonwaste.com.au/shires/kondinin.aspx

Bins for new dwellings or replacements can be ordered through the shire and will be delivered on the next pick up day.


Mobile Phone Recycling at the Shire of Kondinin

There are at least 30 million mobile phone subscribers currently in Australia.  There are also more than 23 million unused phones hiding in drawers, cupboards and garages across Australia, that’s one old phone for every Australian. That’s the equivalent of 2,450 tonnes of metals, minerals, plastic and glass – things that the planet desperately needs us to recycle.  With the average person replacing their mobile phone every 18-24 months.

Mobiles should never be thrown out.  They are not biodegradable, and may contain some potentially environmentally hazardous material.  Did you know that recycling 50,000 handsets can replace the need to mine 110 tonne of gold ore, 123 tonne of silver bearing ore or 11 tonne of copper sulphide ore.

When recycled, over 90% of the materials in mobile phones can be recovered and used as raw materials for new products. The materials recovered can be used to make everything from plastic fence posts to stainless steel products

The Shire of Kondinin has partnered with MobileMuster, the official product stewardship program of the telecommunications industry in Australia, to provide a free recycling service to its residents.  MobileMuster accepts all brands of mobile phones, plus their batteries, chargers and accessories..  Everything collected is recycled to the highest environmental standard for resource recovery with nothing being resold.  We do encourage deleting or removing any data that you want to keep from your SIM card or mobile phone, although any data left on the device is destroyed in the recycling process.

Where to recycle your old mobiles:

  • 11 Gordon Street, Kondinin
  • 12 McPherson Street, Hyden
