Aluminium foil can be placed in the council provided recycling bins, with the yellow lid. It must be clean, scrunched up into a ball and be no smaller than a fist. If aluminium foil is smaller, place in an aluminium can before discarding in the recycling bin.
If left unscrunched, it may be mistaken for paper and sorted incorrectly. If foil is soiled with food or soil it should be placed in the general waste bin, with the red lid.
Packets will foil lining, such as chip packets, should be put in the red lid general waste bin or taken to REDcycle stations at local Coles and Woolworths store (see chip packets for more information).
