Recycling dashboard

The recycling dashboard allows you to view the tonnes of materials recovered in Western Australia and recovery trends.


Material recovery

Select your material category of interest.

The tonnes of recovered materials for your filtered selection are shown in the top left-hand box.

Filter the recovered material tonnes by the reported waste stream source, source region and destination. You can apply multiple filters by holding down your Ctrl key when applying your filters. Remove filters by selecting the filter again.

Recovery and disposal trends

The tonnes of waste recovered, disposed and the material recovery rates are shown on this tab.
