Step 1 – Recycle right
The first step is to ensure you recycle right at home through your kerbside collection. Most councils have a website which will tell you what is accepted, and many bins list the materials that can be put in them.
Also – look for products with the Australasian Recycling Label. This easy-to-read label provides clarity about what packaging can be recycled and tells you where to put each element of the packaging. It removes confusion, saves you time and reduces waste going to landfill.
Download the Recycle Mate App. The Recycle Mate App helps you recycle anywhere in Australia. All you need to do is take a photo or type the name of an item you would like to know more about and Recycle Mate will give you recycling and disposal advice specific to your location.
