Kings Park visitors are asked to reduce and recycle their waste following the introduction of public recycling bins in March 2020.

The new bins are located in picnic and parkland areas across Kings Park and have clear information about what items can be recycled to help minimise confusion and contamination of recyclable waste.

More than one third of the park’s bins are now devoted to recycling thanks to a $250,000 grant from the Waste Authority WA.  

The new bin stations are located in picnic and parkland areas across Kings Park and feature clear information indicating what items can be recycled, to help minimise confusion and contamination of recyclable waste. Paper, cardboard, aluminium, steel and glass are the five key recyclable items we encourage visitors to sort correctly. Visitors are also being urged to consider the amount of waste they bring to the park and how best to dispose of it.

The introduction of recycling bins is just one of the sustainability initiatives to reduce environmental impacts across Kings Park. 

Other initiatives include the park’s composting program which recycles almost 100 per cent of its green waste into mulch and compost, repurposing salvaged timber in landscaping projects, storm water harvesting, the use of solar power and electric vehicles, recycling of plant pots and laboratory supplies, high tech irrigation management to reduce water use and the use of native plants with low water needs in gardens throughout the park. 

The project is part of a suite of initiatives by the McGowan Government aimed at encouraging Western Australians to avoid and recover their waste and protect the environment. Western Australia's Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 aims to increase material recovery to 75% by 2030.

Kings Park is a beautiful natural environment that belongs to the people of Western Australia. We invite the community to help support this iconic place by taking responsibility for your waste when you visit.
