2. Recycling 

We encourage businesses in the City of Swan to consider how they can recycle more effectively, helping to contribute to a healthier environment and potentially saving money too.

Electronic waste (e-waste)

Some common office items that don’t go in your recycling bin can still be recycled. E-waste includes things like old computers, keyboards, mice and more. Contact Total Green Recycling to get started.

Toner cartridges

If you want to drop off your old toner cartridges for recycling, check Planet Ark’s business recycling website.

You can also consider becoming a collection point yourself. Visit the Close the Loop website for more details.
