Entry passes

A Community Recycling Centre entry pass (formerly known as a Waste Transfer Station entry pass), grants homeowners and residents in the Shire of Mundaring access to the Shire's Community Recycling Centres in Mundaring and Chidlow.

 The entry pass is fluro yellow for the 2021/22 financial year.

Entry pass entitlements

An entry pass entitles the resident to:

  • Three entries for general waste disposal to landfill*
  • Unlimited entry and disposal of certain recyclables, separated into different areas for recycling
  • Unlimited entries and disposal of green waste disposal

*Additional entries for general waste can be purchased (see below)

Additional entries for general waste

Additional entries to dispose of general waste may be purchased at the Community Recycling Centre (EFTPOS facilities are available), or at the Shire's Administration Building in Mundaring (view location and opening hours).

The cost is $50 each.

How to get an entry pass

Residential property owners

The Community Recycling Centre entry pass is posted together with the annual rates notice every year.

If you have registered for e-Rates (electronic rates), the pass will be posted to you. If you change your postal address, please complete a Change of Address form.

Tenants (renters)

If you are a tenant leasing a property (renting), you will need to obtain the original entry pass from the homeowner or managing agent, or contact us to purchase a pass for recyclables and green waste only.

Vacant, commercial, non-rateable or non-prescribed properties

A pass may be issued to a property that does not receive one with the standard waste service, for a fee. The entry conditions remain the same as for residents – No commercial vehicles, quantities or commercial waste.

Entry passes are not transferable

The entry pass is not transferable. They are issued to Shire of Mundaring residents to dispose of waste from a single household only. They are issued in the property owner’s name but able to be used by anyone resident in the property. 

Please carry proof of residence for the address on the entry pass as it may be requested by the gate attendant. You will be refused entry if you cannot show you are resident there.

You may not be the property owner, but because you do live there, you will have your Drivers Licence with that address.

Unauthorised use of the entry pass may result in confiscation.

Do I keep my pass once I’ve use my three landfill entries?

Yes. The pass is for the whole year until the next one is issued. It is still entry for any recyclable, green waste and the Grab n Go. You can also purchase additional landfill entries but you still need to keep the pass.

Your entries are saved electronically, and any additional purchase will update in the system ready for gate staff.

Replacing a lost entry pass

A replacement entry pass can be issued to property owners or tenants for a fee.

Please be aware, entry data will be reviewed prior to re-issue and it is a like-for-like replacement. ie. if two general landfill uses have already been used, the replacement pass will have two uses marked as already used.

To arrange a replacement pass, please contact us.

Assistance with entry is available

Residents with an entry pass who may not be able to take their waste to the Community Recycling Centre themselves, are able to contact us in writing to request family and friends as helpers. 

We do appreciate that some residents are unable to make the journey to the Community Recycling Centre themselves. To assist with this, we may issue a permission letter that will link your property entry pass to your helper/s. The helper will need to have their Drivers Licence with them.

Please email your request to shire@mundaring.wa.gov.au. Include your name and property address, contact phone numbers, reason for your request and full name and address of the family who will be assisting you.
