Waste & Recycling
Did you know
Recent bin inspections found that many red lidded household waste bins were overfull with materials which could be recycled or mulched. Do you know what items can be recycled in your yellow lidded bin, or mulched via your green lidded bin?
What can you do?
Take the online pledge below to commit to sending less to landfill, by using your yellow and green lidded bins for recyclable and compostable materials. Once you have taken the pledge, we will send you a sticker to place on your red lidded bin to show everyone you are committed to reducing landfill. You will also go in the draw to win a gift box from the Tourism and Arts Centre, or a voucher to the Waste Transfer Station (valued at $30).
Take the Pledge!
