Public place recycling is here
Did you know Council has installed 34 recycling wheelie bin enclosures in public places around our city, with funding support from the National Packaging Covenant and Department of Environment and Heritage Protection?
So when you’re out and about, look for recycling signs and recycle what you would at home – aluminium, steel, paper and cardboard, glass and plastics with symbols numbering 1-6.
