Bin signs for apartments 

We've made a range of signs to help with recycling and waste sorting in apartments. These can be useful for apartment blocks that are not serviced by Council and have different recycling collections through a private contractor.

Use these signs in your bin room and by garbage chutes to help people know what goes where:

Apartments without green bins or food recycling

Apartments with green bins and food recycling

Other collections

Chute signs

Check your bin days

The bin collection calendar shows you what day your bins are emptied. Use the calendar to see whether it is yellow recycling week or red general waste week. Your green food and garden waste bin is collected every week to help recycle food waste. You can also search your address to see your next bin days, visit the Near me page.

How to read the Australasian Recycling Label (ARL)

The Australasian Recycling Label (ARL) is an evidenced-based recycling label to help you know if packaging can be recycled or not. The ARL shows you what to do with mixed packaging and specifies how to best dispose of each part. Check out this poster and fact sheet for an easy guide or learn more about reading the labels on the ARL website.
