Tip pass FAQ's
I live in a rental property and the owner has sent me their tip passes. Can I use them?
Yes. If you live in a rental property within the City of Stirling, the managing agent or property owner may give you their tip passes to use.
You will need a signed letter from the managing agent or property owner authorising you to use the tip passes, and bring it with you to the Recycling Centre Balcatta, along with the tip passes, ID and a utility bill linking you to the property.
I receive my rates notice via email. Can I show my tip passes on my smartphone or tablet?
No. The Recycling Centre Balcatta does not have the facility to scan tip passes on smartphones or tablets. Tip passes must be printed to be used.
Can I use last year’s tip passes if I haven’t already used them?
No. Tip passes are only valid for the year they are issued.
I’m a Homeswest tenant. Do I have access to tip passes?
Yes. However, Homeswest tenants must phone our contact centre before visiting the Recycling Centre Balcatta.
The Recycling Shop
The centre is also home to the Recycling Shop, where you can purchase a range of previously owned items and enjoy a coffee and snacks from the on-site café while you browse.
