Delivering Sustainable Waste Management Solutions

The Resource Recovery Group is a statutory local government authority established in 1991 by local governments in the southern part of metropolitan Perth. Formerly known as the Southern Metropolitan Regional Council (SMRC), we are responsible for delivering innovative and sustainable waste management solutions for the benefit of our communities and the environment.

Our community is:

  • Town of East Fremantle
  • City of Fremantle
  • City of Melville

Our region encompasses 75 square kilometres within Perth’s southern metropolitan area and has a combined population of over 145,000 people.

The Resource Recovery Group operates a state of the art $100 million facility in Canning Vale, which receives, recycles, and processes waste from some of its member local governments and the community.

The Resource Recovery Group is committed to assisting the State Government to work towards its targets of diversion of waste from landfill. It employs over 50 staff and provides work for 100 local small businesses and contractors each month.
