Tips:
  • Please do not put recycling in plastic bags as any bagged recycling is a health and safety hazard and sent to landfill.

  • Please remove all plastic lids from bottles and containers and place these in the red lidded waste bin.

  • Please rinse all containers, jars and bottles before placing them in the recycling bin, one tip is to use the washing up water after washing dishes for this purpose to save water.

  • Put newspaper, junk mail or paper towel in the bin first to help absorb any moisture and keep the bin clean.

  • If you bin is missed or damaged please phone JR Richards Waste Hotline on 1300 725 415

  • Ensure the lid of your bin is completely closed to reduce odours and risk of vermin.

  • Place your bin on the street the night before collection day to ensure it is collected.

  • If your bin is missed or damaged please submit the forms on this app to notify Council or call Council on (02) 6333 6111.
