Bin Health Checks

Over the next few weeks, you might see a few of our Waste Education Officers around your neighbourhood. We are currently rolling out a Bin Health Check program across Townsville with the following goals in mind:

  • To support residents in their understanding of the importance of proper landfill and recycling disposal.
  • Assist in the reduction of contamination in the waste stream.
  • Decrease the number of recyclables that are currently entering the waste stream.

The data we collect as part of this program will be used by Council to develop future waste education materials to help provide sustainable and long-term waste solutions for our city.

Watch our series of short videos on recycling tips here.

For quick reference, see below a list of items that should be sorted into your general waste and recycling bins:
