Disposing of everyday items
To help the community become better recyclers, it’s important to know how to best dispose of everyday items.
Whether you’re putting items in your wheelie bins for collection or taking them to a drop off location, find out what items can be recycled and where.
Remember, household waste is collected weekly, and recycling is collected fortnightly. You may also be eligible for the green bin program.
You can check when your bins will be collected by entering the suburb into Suburb information.
Recycling is an important way to reduce our waste to landfill.
Where can you recycle?
Use your recycling wheelie bin to recycle:
- rigid plastic packaging containers
- paper and cardboard products
- glass bottles and jars
- steel and aluminium cans
You can also take your excess recycling to a drop off facility or resource management centre.
What can be recycled?
Find out what can be recycled, plus other disposal options, in the Recyclopaedia. There are many other items that can be recycled at resource management centres, including green waste, electronic waste, and some building waste.
