Get it right on bin night

Getting it right is easy – just follow these simple steps:

  • Know what you can recycle.
  • Check for recycling in every room.

Many items in your kitchen, bathroom, laundry, lounge and study can go in your recycling bin.

  • Make sure items are empty.
  • Items don’t need to be sparkling clean, just empty. Remove solids food scraps like pizza and leftovers.
  • Keep recycling out of plastic bags.

Remember, if you put your recycling in plastic bags it may end up in landfill because it can’t be sorted and recycled.

  • Polystyrene foam packaging – place in your rubbish bin.
  • Ceramic and glass waste (non packaging) such as cups, crockery, drinking glasses, Pyrex glass, ovenware, window glass and mirrors, should be wrapped (if broken) and placed in your garbage bin.
  • Scrap metal items like car parts – go to one of the three waste facilities located in Myrtleford, Porepunkah and Mount Beauty.
