Wingecarribee Shire Council offers three sizes of yellow lidded bins to help residents better manage their recycling:
Available bin sizes include: 140L, 240L and 360L, with the standard being 240L.
These bins are collected fortnightly.
The recycling service is commingled, which means all recyclable items are placed together into one bin.

Magazines, Office Paper and
Rigid Plastic Containers from
your kitchen, bathroom and
laundry (lids removed)

Glass Bottles and Jars (lids removed)

An ongoing recycling bin inspection program will take place to ensure only recyclable items are placed in the correct bin.
The new collection vehicles are fitted with cameras to check the bin contents every time it is emptied. Residents who continually place incorrect items in the recycling bin may have their bin removed.
