Mixed recycling bins around the district

There are a number of recycling centres across the district located at supermarkets, shopping precincts, car parks, community buildings, etc.

Mixed recycling bins are provided at these sites. There is no need to separate your recycling, it is sent to a facility where they sort it for you. Please just make sure that your recycling is clean.
