Waste & recycling
Where can I take waste?
The reuse, recycling, treatment and disposal options for waste depend on the waste type and its characteristics.
This section provides information on what can be done with specific waste types, including specific collection programs that are offered to deal with waste. Use the menu on the left to navigate around the section.
Don’t want to let your recycling go to waste? Can't remember which council bin your unwanted items should go into?
You can check out what goes into each bin at home, and also how to dispose of televisions, computers, batteries, fluorescent lamps, nappies and paint through your council.
Remember putting the wrong items in your recycling bin can contaminate the whole load, meaning valuable material that could be recycled, ends up being sent to landfill instead.
