Landfill - What to put in your red bin?
Red lid bins are collected fortnightly if you are on a collection route or for rural residents recycling material can be taken to any of Council's Recycling and Waste Depots or Community Recycling Centres.
There's actually not a lot that should be going in your landfill bin - most things can be recycled or composted!!
What you CAN put in your red bin!
- Disposable nappies and incontinence aids
- Glass, Pyrex and ceramics (broken or whole)
- Disposable cups, plates and cutlery (check that they aren't certified compostable first!)
- Garden hoses and rope
- Glad wrap and plastic films
- Soft plastics that are unable to be cleaned for soft plastic recycling
- Styrofoam or polystyrene
- Textiles and shoes beyond reuse or repair
Lets all #choosetherightbin and keep our landfill for those few things that actually need it.
What you CAN'T put in your red bin!
- Household batteries, smoke detectors, fluorescent globes and tubes, gas bottles, fire extinguishers, motor and cooking oils - drop for free at the Community Recycling Centre
- E-waste - dispose of at local waste transfer station or check with appliance stores
- Car parts
- Building waste, rocks, soil - disposal at your local waste transfer station (loads over 3m3 and rocks/soil please call Council)
