People holding recyclable materials for the recycle right campaign

Recycling information for residents

Our recycling industry is changing so it’s more important than ever that we put the right items in our recycling bins.

Byron Shire Council, together with North East Waste and the seven Northern Rivers Councils have launched a new campaign called #RecycleRight, which asks people to make some changes to the we recycle.

Our main message is to keep recycling simple and clean so we can send our products for remanufacturing in Australia and overseas.  

If we all do this, we can keep our resources coming around and get the most life out of every product.

This project has been developed in partnership with Ballina, Clarence Valley, Kyogle, Lismore City, Richmond Valley and Tweed Councils. Keep in mind that sometimes what can and can’t be accepted at the local Materials Recycling Facility changes, according to fluctuations and demand in the recycling markets.
