What's Recyclable and What's Not!

Recycling bins are collected by Warren Blackwood Waste and transported to a recycling facility.

If items which are not recyclable are found the content can’t be recycled and the load will be directed to landfill.

If an item is covered in food, it is not recyclable. Food is one of the worst contaminators in the recycling process. Please remember to rinse out cups, cans, jars etc. before throwing them in the bin.

By using the yellow top recycling bin correctly you are contributing, in a combined community effort, to reduce the amount of rubbish that is directed to landfill facilities each year.

Recycling at our Local Tip Sitesrecycling bins

If you are located where the recycling service does not extend, e.g. on a farm, you are still able to help the environment and recycle.

Located at our tip sites are designated bins for recyclable material, including bottles, cans and cardboard. These bins are collected and transported to a recycling depot.

 

E-Waste (electrical appliances)

Australians are among the highest users of new technology, making e-waste a growing problem.

E-waste can contain materials and chemical components which can cause harm to our environment and human population, leaching into soil and groundwater. When recycled at designated recycling facilities, e-waste is disposed of in a safe manner or reused to produce new products.

A list of e-waste recycling facilities can be found on the Planet Ark, Recycle Near You website, http://recyclingnearyou.com.au
