Recycling bin with a yellow lid
All Residential Properties
Avoid unnecessary packaging.
Reuse before you recycle.
Leichhardt Council has 2 bins for recycling. This ensures that your paper and cardboard is high quality so that the maximum amount of paper collected can be recycled.
Avoid the use of plastic bags.
Recycle clean paper / cardboard only. Coffee cups are not recyclable. Buy reusable or place in compost bin/wormfarm.
Choose products that contain recycled materials or can be recycled.
Plastics marked with 6 symbol (expanded polystyrene or foam) are not recyclable. Only "smooth" plastics marked with 6 symbol e.g. yogurt containers, can be placed in recycling bin.
