Recycle Right

Did you know that Townsville residents recycle approximately 12,500 tonnes per year? Now it’s time to look at how we can work together to keep improving our efforts.

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.

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.
