Residential property owners have the choice of either a 240 litre or a 360 litre yellow lid recycle bin. Additional bins are also available. To view bin prices, please visit order new bins.

All items placed into your recycle bin must be loose, not in plastic bags. Soft plastic items that you can scrunch in your hand (glad wrap, plastic packaging, plastic bags or chip packets) must be placed into your garbage bin or taken to your local supermarket for recycling.
