Available bin sizes include: 140L, 240L and 360L, with the standard being 240L.

Recycling Hints and Tips

  • Please flatten plastic and cardboard containers to make more space in your recycling bin
  • Please wipe out or rinse recyclable containers in old washing up water before placing them in the recycling bin

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.
