Recycling Bin

Your recycling is collected each week, on the same day as your garbage. Your collection day can be found on the weekly collection schedule.

Please make sure your bins are on the kerb before 5am on your collection day. Remove all lids, rinse containers and crush all plastic bottles, cans and milk cartons to make room available in your bin for your recyclables. Please avoid contamination - do not place food or other household waste in the bin.
