Residential Recycling

Recycling is collected fortnightly on the same day as your rubbish.

Acceptable recycling:

  • Cans, glass and cartons
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Plastic with codes 1-7, except expandable polystyrene (APES)

  • Plastic bags, plastic wrap or bin liners
  • Nappies or syringes
  • Pyrex, window glass, light globes, broken glass or ceramics
