We want to keep the staff who collect your recycling safe. Safety is critical to Council and its contractors. If we continuously find non-recyclable and dangerous material in your recycling bins we may stop collecting your recycling.
Tips for cardboard and plastics
The contents of your bin must fall freely into the truck — please do not jam oversized cardboard into your bin.
Flatten boxes and where possible, cut down flat cardboard so it fits easily into your wheelie bin.
Items such as buckets and washing baskets will not be collected. Only household plastic bottles and containers, plastics 1 and 2, from your kitchen or laundry
Please don’t include any oversized plastics (nothing over 3 litres), meat trays or polystyrene.
Meat trays can’t be recycled because the dimpled plastic means they can’t be safely cleaned
BINS AND CRATES ALTERNATE!
Recycling is a great way to divert waste from ending up in landfill!
