Nappies (disposable)

Disposable nappies should always be placed in your green-lid rubbish waste bin. Human waste seriously contaminates the yellow-lid recycling bin and can impose consequences as serious as export bans


Needles, syringes and sharps are classed as medical waste and should never be placed in your kerbside bins. Medical waste must be destroyed to prevent risk of infection from pathogens. Needles and syringes can be safely disposed of by returning to a needle and syringe exchange program, placing in a special needle and syringe disposal unit provided by some local governments or businesses, or arranging for a waste disposal company to assist in the disposal of large quantities of needles and syringes.

Please place in your yellow-lid recycling bin.

If you have your newspaper delivered you can take the plastic film it comes wrapped in to major supermarkets such as Coles or Woolworths for recycling with your other soft plastics – look for the Redcycle collection bin at the front of the store.

Please do not place unwrapped newspapers in your recycling bin.
