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).

Call 9345 8555 for more information.
