We need everyone to ‘bin good’ so we can recycle. We collect about 20 to 30 trucks loads of recycling every day. We need all our trucks processed for recycling and not to go to landfill.

Where we're at now

46% of trucks are going to landfill, at a cost of $1000 per truck, instead of being recycled. This is because we can only recycle if we have correct, clean items in the yellow bin.

Do your part to help us recycle by putting the correct items in your yellow bin. Find out what items you can put in your yellow bin.

So far we've only been able to recycle 54% of all the recycling truckloads.

Putting the wrong stuff in the yellow bin has resulted in 46% of truckloads being sent to landfill, at a cost to ratepayers of $635,000. 

We need everyone to 'bin good' and put the right stuff in your yellow bin.
