What Goes in What Bin

Correctly sorting your waste helps to reduce what goes to landfill and increases recycling rates. For a detailed list or to search for a specific item or material, use the A-Z guide on the Recycle Right website. Alternatively, download our basic list of what goes in what bin.

What to Do if We Don’t Pick Up Your Bin

If we haven’t picked up your bin, it may be because it was presented to the verge too late, contaminated with the wrong materials, it was too heavy, or it was put in a location where the truck was unable to access it. If this is the case, we will leave a sticker on your bin and/or a letter in your mailbox letting you know why we were unable to collect it.

Please ensure your bin is presented by 6:00am on your collection day. If we haven’t picked up your bin by 2:30pm on your scheduled bin day and no sticker or letter has been left, we may have missed your bin accidentally. If so, please fill in our online form and we will empty your bin within 3 working days.

Tips for Reducing Odours in your General Waste Bin

  • Keep your bins in the shade with the bin lids tightly closed
  • Squeeze excess air out of bin liners and tie off tightly before placing the bag in the bin
  • Sprinkle baking soda, kitty litter, vinegar, oil of cloves or lemon juice into the bin after it has been emptied to absorb odours 
  • Use a deodoriser in the bin - available from most hardware stores
  • Clean your bin regularly with hot soapy water 
  • Spray insect surface spray around the inside of the bin and lid to deter pests
