Kerbside Recycling Services in the Mosman Municipal Council area
Below are the kerbside recycling services provided by your local Council.
What about plastic and metal lids from containers? The recycling facility can currently process any lids larger than 5cm in diameter, as long as they are placed in the recycling bin separately from the container from which it came. In regards to plastic - the lids are made of a different type of plastic from the container. Flatten cardboard before placing it in the blue lidded bin for paper & cardboard recycling. Items stored outside of recycling bins will not be collected. Which recycling bin do I place milk and juice cartons in? Milk and juice cartons are placed in the yellow lidded bin for containers, glass and plastic recycling. Milk and juice cartons are made from a product known as liquidpaperboard (LPB), which is not ordinary cardboard. Can I still use crates for recycling? Mobile Recycling Bins have replaced crates for the collection of recyclables. Crates can no longer used for the collection of recyclables unless you have received a Council approved exemption. Should crates be used for the presentation of recyclables they will be taken away by Council. How do I present my bins for collection at the kerb? Council’s Local Approval Policy – Management of Waste In Public Places – outlines a number of requirements in relation to bin presentation. See Council's website for more details.
