By providing a recycling facility it is Council’s intention to significantly reduce the amount of recyclable waste from residential rubbish collection not only benefiting the environment, but also reducing time and costs associated with rubbish tip maintenance and collection.

Users of the recycling facility are reminded that all milk and drink containers including cans are washed and rinsed to ensure that ants are not attracted or odours created.
