City of Fremantle Withdrawal

Published on Friday, 7 June 2024 at 11:28:58 AM

Following Town of East Fremantle’s planned 2024 withdraw from Resource Recovery Group (RRG), The City of Melville officially confirmed its decision to withdraw membership and participation from the RRG at an Ordinary Meeting of Council. Subsequently, the City of Fremantle resolved on the 22 May 2024 to give formal notice to the Chief Executive Officer at the Resource Recovery Group of the City of Fremantle’s intention to withdraw as a member and project participant of the Resource Recovery Group, effective from 1 July 2025.

RRG remains committed to collaborating with the cities of Fremantle, Melville and Canning on a proposed new waste collective agreement that will see continued operations at the Canning Vale Centre beyond 1 July 2025.

Until the proposed new waste collective agreement is established, the RRG will continue to operate the Canning Vale Centre’s Material Recovery Facility, FOGO Processing Facility, Green Waste Facility, and Audit Facility. There will be no interruptions to waste services for our commercial or member councils’ residents.

The RRG is proud to work together with our member councils to ensure the continued successes of the Canning Vale Centre. The Cities of Fremantle, Melville and the Town of East Fremantle have all accomplished incredible achievements for their communities while working with the Resource Recovery Group. Together, since 2000, we have diverted 1,930,000 tonnes of waste from landfill, abated 660,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents, and produced 1.37 million tonnes of products for re-use. 

The RRG will keep all stakeholders informed as we progress through this transition.
