Recycling just got easier with our partner, RecycleSmart!

We want to empower our residents to improve their recycling practices, live more sustainably and work towards becoming a zero waste community. So, we’ve partnered with Recycle Smart to make it easier.

Visit the RecycleSmart website or download the RecycleSmart App

The app provides specific and localised information on how to correctly dispose of over 250 waste items. From glass to batteries or chemicals – find the answer at your fingertips. You can even use the app to look up your next collection day and find out about local waste events.

Introducing the Power Pickup

Recycling the tricky stuff (like e-waste and clothing):

• Fill a RecycleSmart bag (or your own) with your “non-bin” items and book a pickup in a few clicks

• The RecycleSmart team will come to your doorstep and ensure your waste is properly recycled.

• Subscribe for free for a monthly pickup (2 bags) or book a on demand pickup for $5 per bag.

• Right now, 20% of red bin waste could be recycled. Help us keep it out of landfill, and keep our community beautiful!

Donate to The Bower

The Bower Logo

Donate your household goods to The Bower, and they will resell them back to the community at low cost, or get them to people in need via their house to home program.

Bookings are avaiable

It can take unto 2 weeks before your items may be collected. If The Bower can’t accept your donation or you’re in a hurry, utilise their new REUSE Database, which has lots of local solutions for donating unwanted goods.

If you have issues with having you bins raided ensure your bins are kept on private property and emptied of eligible containers before being placed out for weekly collection.

Return & Earn

Return and Earn logoBottles, cans and cartons make up a large proportion of the litter on our streets, beaches and green spaces. Tackling the problem costs NSW millions of dollars every year. Return and Earn is a way for us all to help solve the litter problem and be rewarded for our efforts.
