Recycling and rubbish

Let's get recycling sorted!

We are encouraging residents to put the right things in their recycling bin.

The key messages

  • Put all bagged material in the rubbish bin.
  • Keep your recycling loose.
  • Empty all containers, bottles and cans.
  • Put plastic bags and other softs plastics in the rubbish bin or drop them off at participating Coles and Woolworths for recycling.
  • Put polystyrene in your rubbish bin or take it to the Geelong Resource Recovery Centre for recycling.
  • Put cardboard cartons designed to hold liquids into the rubbish bin.
