Your red landfill bin

Your red landfill bin is collected fortnightly and is for waste that is not reusable or recyclable and ends up buried in landfill.

Sending waste to landfill is expensive, a waste of resources and harmful to our environment. It's up to all of us to think about the waste we create and to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as we can.

  • Baby food pouches
  • Bottle lids (smaller than a credit card)
