Do Your Part for Quality Recycling

Recycle better and avoiding contamination

The issue of recycle bin contamination and the negative impact contamination has on the quality of recyclables placed in the wrong collection systems is a big problem. We can all do our part in achieving quality recycling. Good recycling behaviour includes;

  • Ensuring you rinse any food or liquid residues from containers.
  • Ensure you’re fully aware of what can go in your recycle bin and do not place incorrect materials in the recycle bin.
  • Ensure you know the correct collection day for their area so recyclables do not build up and get put in other bins.
  • Do not put mixed recyclables compacted into a box or bag and then into your recycle bin as these need to be pulled out for mechanical separation.
  • Do not put food waste or other compostable materials such as garden waste in your recycle bin.
  • Do not put electrical items in your recycle bin.
  • Do not put clothes in your recycle bin.
  • Do not put old shoes in your recycle bin.
  • Do not put used batteries in your recycle bin.
  • Recycle more items from the bathroom or others areas of your house.
