Yellow Wheelie Bin

Your recycling bin is the 240 litre bin with the yellow lid, which is collected fortnightly.  
Any materials collected are sorted and reprocessed into new products.

Recycling Tips

  • Remove all lids from bottles, jars and containers before placing in the recycling bin
  • Rinse containers as necessary
  • Place all recyclables loose in the bin (don't bundle newspapers or cardboard or put your recycling in plastic bags)
  • Lids can be placed loose in the bin
  • Keep recyclables of different materials separate from one another (e.g. do not place cans in boxes)

Plastic Bag and Packaging Recycling

Recycle your soft plastics in specially marked bins at local Coles and Woolworths stores so that they can be turned into outdoor furniture for Aussie primary schools and pre-schools. Types of soft plastics that can be recycled include:

  • Shopping bags including reusable 'green’ bags
  • Fresh fruit and vegie bags
  • Bread bags
  • Biscuit packaging and confectionery packaging
  • Rice & pasta packets and frozen food bags
