What goes in my recycling bin?
Place the following items in your recycling bin - no plastic bags or polystyrene
What NOT to put in the recycling bin
Incorrect items in recycling bins can damage our environment and harm process workers.
Removing incorrect items and cartage to landfill costs Council, and ultimately the community, because penalties can be applied by manufacturers if material is contaminated.

Additional recycling waste collection services
You can order an additional recycling bin at a cost of $80.21 per financial year.
Costs are based on collection and disposal fees, bin provision and maintenance costs, and administration. Service fees are included within the rates notice, subject to annual budgetary reviews and calculated on a pro rata basis.
If you move or no longer require the additional waste collection service, please contact the Council, so the wheelie bin/s can be removed from your property, the Council's records updated and the fee removed from your rates notice.
If you wish to take advantage of this offer or discontinue an existing service, please contact the Council on
9932 1000 or complete the Additional Waste Service form. The wheelie bin will be delivered within five working days.
