It’s easy to Recycle Right in South Australia
Over 70% of SA’s waste gets recycled. But a lot of valuable resources that could be recycled are still going to landfill.
Zero Waste SA has developed a recycling directory to support the South Australian community to divert unwanted materials away from landfills through recycling. By entering your location and the material you wish to recycle, the directory will find the nearest recycler to you. The directory also has details about a range of organisations that are involved in supporting the recycling industry.
The Recycling Near You website allow you to search for local recycling information either by location or product.
