Recycle Right

Townsville residents recycle approximately 15,000 tonnes of household packaging materials every year. This is great work, however our bin health checks across Townsville have shown that each year we are still sending more than 10,000 tonnes of recyclable material to landfill through our general waste bins.

It’s time to look at how we can work together to keep improving our recycling efforts and recovering these valuable materials.

As well as understanding what can and can't be recycled, we ask that your recyclables are free from food and other contaminants, never bagged, and free from broken glass or other hazardous materials.

Check out the tips below to help you recycle right!

Keep out Small Items

Don’t place anything smaller than a credit card into your yellow lid recycling bin, including:

  • Bottle lids and caps
  • Bread tags
  • Plastic and paper clothing tags.
