🌊 Happy World Oceans Day! 🌊

We are lucky to have some of the best beaches in the world, nestled in the Recherche Archipelago. We have a uniquely beautiful and wild coastline that we share with many magnificent creatures and important ecosystems.

8 million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans each year, and it is estimated that there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050.

Consider ways to give back to the oceans that give us beautiful life and turn the tide on pollution!

🐟 Take 3 for the sea each time you visit the beach or the river
🐬 Join the next beach clean up!
🦑 Be a tidy fisherman, and take care with fishing waste
🐡 Refuse single use!
🐋 Recycle your wetsuit through the Rip Curl wetsuit take back recycling program
🦈 Be 'reef safe' when being sun safe, by using reef safe body products at the beach
🐙 Join the Plastic Free July Challenge!

🌏 It is World Environment Day tomorrow! Saturday, June 5th 🌏

We cannot turn back time - this is our moment to reimagine, recreate, and restore the future of our planet. We can grow native trees, rewild our gardens, and clean up our rivers & coasts. We can make many small changes in our everyday lives, such as minimising our waste & making sustainable choices. We can get involved with our community by participating in clean ups, planting days, and sustainability workshops, and we can get involved in worldwide efforts by connecting on social media and sharing our achievements and great ideas!

 🌿 This years World Environment Day theme is 'Ecosystem Restoration - Reimagine. Recreate. Restore'

🌏 Reimagine - All waste as a resource,  sustainable packaging choices, and design out waste & pollution by transitioning to a circular economy.

🌏 Recreate - Use waste materials in creative and innovative ways, and create new ways of doing things to minimise environmental impact and waste generation.

🌏 Restore - Utilising recovered resources in applications that benefit the ecosystem, such as compost, and replacing virgin materials with recycled materials ♻️

How are you going to celebrate World Environment Day?

Did you know that fluorescent tubes and CFL globes contain mercury?

♻️ While this lighting type is energy efficient, these lamps need to be properly recycled to ensure that the mercury does not enter the environment.
♻️ Mercury also poses a hazard to human health, so please take care when handling and transporting these items!

We accept all types of household lighting waste, and can accept some industrial lighting wastes, please give the Wylie Bay Waste Facility a call on 08 9071 7594 to check that we can accept your industrial lighting types and quantities.

❌ Do not put globes in to your recycling bin as the globes break during collection and sorting, contaminating the load and posing a safety hazard. 

✅ Small quantities of globes can be dropped off to the Shire Administration building and the Library, but we appreciate it if you can head to Wylie Bay Waste Facility with these fragile items.

Did you know that 1L of waste oil can contaminate 1 million litres of water? 

♻️Waste oil contains pollutants such as toxic chemicals and heavy metals, so it is really important to ensure that waste oil does not enter the environment.
♻️ Oil released to the environment is damaging to the whole ecosystem, and it is difficult and expensive to remediate.
♻️ Crude oil is a finite resource but used oil can be recycled and reused an infinite amount of times.
♻️ Take care when handling, storing, and transporting your waste oil!

✅Domestic volumes of waste oil (up to 40L) can be dropped off to Wylie Bay Waste Facility to be recycled for free.

✅Oil filters are able to be dropped off at Wylie Bay Waste Facility for recycling - waste voucher required, or fee payable.

✅Wylie Bay Waste Facility is not able to accept volumes of waste oil larger than 40L, but there are options for recycling all waste oil products for industrial and commercial sites. Please contact us for further information by sending us a message, or email to wasterevolution@esperance.wa.gov.au

You can recycle Nespresso pods through the Shire. 

You can bring Nespresso pods from home in to the Shire administration building. 

The aluminium is melted down and recycled, the grounds are composted and this service is provided free of charge by Nespresso. 

Do you know a local business that goes through a lot of coffee and would benefit from one of these? 1,500 used capsules will fit in one box and they do need to be picked up regularly. 

This is another way we can fight the war on waste in Esperance.

Follow link for more information on how your business can recycle coffee pods:

White goods are recycled as scrap steel.  Most are free, however fridges incur a fee because they have the refrigerant gas reclaimed.

This is good for the environment.

You can use your waste voucher to pay for this fee.

There are recycling stations at the Administration Building and Library where you can drop off household batteries, all globes and fluorescent tubes, mobile phone batteries, handsets and accessories and chargers

Please keep batteries out of landfill - Do not put them in your bin or trailer waste, they are hazardous and commonly start fires at landfills.

You can also drop off used hair and beauty products, and aluminium coffee pods at the Administration Building.  These are recycled through Terracycle - Why not start your own recycling station - https://www.terracycle.com/en-AU/
