Your Yellow Lidded Bin

Yellow Lidded Bin

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.

Helpful Hints


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.
