By putting the right stuff in the yellow bin, you’re making it possible for us to recycle. Remember to give your bottles and containers a rinse, make sure they are loose and put the lids in the red bin. Your recycling bin is collected every two weeks.
What happens to your recycling?
Putting the right clean items in the yellow bin helps to keep our recycling quality high. This means the recycling markets, where we sell our recycling, are more likely to buy it when compared to lower quality recycling.
If we lose access to any of our recycling markets, either here or overseas, it’s likely that we will have to send this material to landfill. It costs much more to send material to landfill than to recycle it.
