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
  • cartons.

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.
