Check your bin days

The recycling and waste 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.

How to recycle soft plastics

The REDcycle soft plastics collection program is temporarily paused — please note that soft plastics cannot be returned to supermarkets at this time.

Soft plastics (‘scrunchable’ plastics such as plastic bags, confectionary wrappers and bread bags) are not recyclable in the yellow bin.

Please put soft plastics in your general waste bin. For more information, please visit the REDcycle website.
