Recycling Information

2017 WASTE and RECYCLING Schedule with map identifying Blanshard and Downie pick up areas, plus Smartphone or Tablet App.

Bi-Weekly Recycling Collection

Bluewater Recycling Association is contracted for the co-collection of recyclables and garbage throughout Perth South.  Collection will be on a bi-weekly basis for both recyclables and garbage. Acceptable recycling material is collected at no charge.  A reminder to residents that there is a weight restriction, any container over 20 kgs (45 lbs) or over 30 gallons will not be collected because it is unsafe for the collection drivers.  The weight limits are in place so that our collection drivers can safely, using proper lifting techniques maneuver containers in the collection truck.
Specific information about the Bluewater Recycling Association and its recycling program may be found at the Association website: or call 1-800-265-9799.
