Recycling Service

Most household packaging waste is recyclable and need not end up in your garbage bin. You can reduce the volume of waste created in the home simply by using our service to recycle as much as you can. Recycling will also help to conserve our environment and reclaim valuable resources.

Did you know that every tonne of recycled paper used saves 13 trees, 2.5 barrels of oil, 4,100kWh of electricity, 4 cubic metres of landfill and 31,780 litres of water?

How does this service work?

All residents have been provided with a 120L or 240L co-mingled yellow-lid recycling bin. This means all recycling can now go into the one bin.

Recycling is collected weekly on the same day as your domestic waste and organics service.

Council can also provide recycling posters/brochures for unit blocks upon request. Phone Customer Service on 9391 7000 for more information.
