About Single Bin Recycling
The City is proud to offer single bin recycling to all of our residents. This means that
you do not need to separate your recyclables – we do it for you! Approximately
69 per cent of single bin contents processed are recycled, from bottles, cans
and paper to food and garden waste. Compared to the traditional two bin
system, single bin recycling saves approximately 50,000 tonnes of greenhouse
gas emissions per year (source: Carbon Reduction Institute, NSW, March 2009).
