Recycling in Apartments - Help Us Sort It Out


Council is offering a free recycling improvement program for apartment buildings throughout the local area.

The program involves a Council staff member visiting your site to discuss how to improve the building's recycling. This could include installing and improving signage in common bin bay areas, providing educational materials, information and tools for residents and organising the replacement or repair of any bins.

Keen to register your interest?

Whether you are a property manager, real estate agent or a resident, please email and include details such as the building address, number of apartments and main contact person.

Below are some examples of the signs Council can provide.
