DON'T PLACE RECYCLABLES IN PLASTIC BAGS

Some Handy Recycling Tips…

  • Remove all lids and put these in the waste (red lid) bin
  • Labels are okay left on
  • Give containers a quick rinse, this helps prevent odours (use old dish-washing water, to save water)
  • Place all items loosely into your recycling bin

For more information about the recycling waste stream, download a copy of the Kerbside Collection Calendar under Related Resources.
