If we understand the impact of recycling we can make a big difference to how much rubbish goes needlessly into landfill.
Recycling Guide - A to Z
From ‘A’ - for air conditioners - to ‘Z’ - for zip lock bags - use our A to Z guide to work out where you can recycle a whole heap of different things.
Return and Earn
Council provides kerbside recycling services to the local community. To complement these services, the NSW Government is delivering the largest litter reduction scheme introduced in NSW - the container deposit scheme, Return and Earn. The scheme started in December 2017 to help reduce drink container litter, which in 2014-15 totalled about 160 million drink containers and aims to reduce litter in NSW by 40% by 2020.
More details and local collection points can be found on Return and Earn.
