Recycling

By recycling and recovering resources we can dramatically reduce the amount of waste that is disposed to landfills.

Reducing waste to landfill by recovering more resources from waste is a key objective of both the Statewide Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Plan and the Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plan.

If you can’t reduce your waste or re-use the items then take a look at your recycling options below. Items not accepted in your council kerbside collection may be recycled at resource recovery centres or transfer stations. Please use the search box to the right to find where to recycle items.
