Ask us about your recycling
Monday 01 February 2021
For a long time, Australia has relied on other countries to take our recycling. These countries no longer accept our recycling.
So, recycling is changing, and Yarra is changing with it. From now on, we’re only accepting items that can be recycled in Australia to help to grow our local industry, create jobs and ensure we can recycle here in the future.
