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.
Also check out the handy guide to see what should go in your yellow-lidded bin.
You can also take a look at out Handy Quick Reference Guide to see what you can put in your yellow lidded recycling bin.
There are many items that can be recycled, just not using your Council Yellow Lidded Bin.
Have a look at out Handy Quick Reference Guide to see how to dispose of many of your unwanted waste types.
The 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.
Recycling plastics can be complicated. Plastic can be made from a variety of different materials and depending on this material and how it is made will contribute to how it can be recycled. The basic idea is if it is hard enough to be unable to poke a hole through with your finger but also flexible enough to be twisted, then it is recyclable.
