Garbage Guru City of Sydney's ultimate guide to recycling and disposing of stuff.
Put in your Recycling Bin
This is your bin with the yellow lid. It’s the best way to recycle paper, cardboard and most plastic containers, as well as cans and glass bottles. You don’t need to rinse your containers, but items should be EMPTY and DRY. By all means, a light rinse will help to keep your bin odour-free, just follow up with a bit of a wipe if you can.
Did you know?
The plastic wrapping around newspapers cannot be recycled in your yellow bin. It needs to be removed and placed in the red garbage bin before recycling the newspaper. You can also recycle plastic wrapping through RedCycle bins at Coles supermarkets.
