Recycling Tips!

Plastic Bags: When recycling, don't put your recyclables in a plastic bag. For safety reasons, staff at the recycling centre will not open plastic bags, no matter what the contents are. So anything in plastic bags will end up in landfill. To avoid contaminating the recycling stream, don't use plastic bags in your recycling bin - simply put your recyclable items into the bin loosely.

Drought Buster Recycling: Make sure recyclables such as jars, bottles and cans are empty and contain no liquid or food. So remove food scraps, tip out liquids and if needed give a wipe out. If you prefer to wash your recyclables - try using old dishwater instead of fresh water. Just a little bit of effort will reduce the smell in your bin and on the sorting lines.

What happens to your recycling?

A new fleet of trucks will empty all of your bins, with recyclables taken to a new materials recovery facility in Somersby. The resulting materials are sent to various recyclers, to be made back into paper, new containers, and various other products. -Click Here- for further information.
