Recycling - Home, School, Work

Recycling at home, school and work

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.
