Keep it clean

Keep it clean by wiping or rinsing any excess food and drink from all bottles, containers and tins before placing them in your recycling bin. Keep out food scraps, nappies and soiled paper.

You can also Keep it Clean by keeping out items that will contaminate your recycling. This means no:

  • food scraps
  • nappies
  • dirty paper or cardboard
  • meat or biscuit trays
  • coffee cups or lids,
  • clothing or fabric
  • soft plastics
  • polystyrene


Tip: To find our more about what goes in each bin, pick up a fridge magnet and A-Z guide from Council’s office in Mullumbimby, the Byron Resource Recovery Centre in Myocum or a local library.
