What can I Recycle 120614.jpg

Residents are encouraged to recycle their rubbish. Recycling is collected on a fortnightly basis; however customers can take their own recycle bin to landfill as long as the newspapers and cardboard are kept separate to the other recyclables (cans, bottles, plastics etc). This can be delivered free of charge.

What can we recycle?

  • Newspapers
  • Magazines
  • Envelopes (with or without windows)
  • Office paper
  • Cardboard
  • Egg cartons
  • Telephone books
  • Milk and juice cartons.
  • Glass bottles and jars – clear, green and brown glass only (with lids removed)
  • Aluminium and steel cans – all aerosol, food, baby formula, Milo, pet food, tuna, beverage cans and oil tins
  • Plastic bottles and containers

What can't we recycle?

  • Plastic bags (even if numbered)
  • Polystyrene foam/packing foam (even if numbered)
  • Syringes
  • Toys
  • Bottle lids
  • Pizza boxes
  • Tissue paper
  • Meat trays
  • Waxed fruit boxes
  • Plastic plant pots (even if numbered)
  • Plates/crockery
  • Mirror/window glass
  • Batteries
  • Paint tins

Most household packaging waste is recyclable and need not to end up in your garbage bin. You can reduce the volume of waste created in the home simply by using our service to recycle as much as you can. Recycling will also help to conserve our environment and reclaim valuable resources.

Did you know that every tonne of recycled paper used saves 13 trees, 2.5 barrels of oil, 4,100kWh of electricity, 4 cubic metres of landfill and 31,780 litres of water?
