Real Christmas trees: break into pieces and place in your green-lid bin so they can be composted.

Fairy lights and plastic Christmas decorations (tinsel and baubles): cannot be recycled so put into your red-lid bin.

Aluminium foil trays: recycle in your yellow-lid bin – ensure they are rinsed, and rolled into a ball shape.

Is your yellow-lid bin full due to Xmas? Bring your recyclable kitchen, laundry, or office containers/packaging to 54 Chaston St - drive in, report at the office, then put items into bins provided.

THANK YOU FOR RECYCLING CORRECTLY as the amount of non-recyclable items we receive grows over Christmas and other holiday periods.

Kurrajong Recycling and the Riverina community are contributing to building the CIRCULAR ECONOMY and preventing valuable resources from being lost to landfill.

DISPOSAL of NON-RECYCLABLE ITEMS COSTS us Approx. $200,000.00 a year in transport and Council landfill fees. Dealing with these items can be dangerous, as well as taking up valuable staff time and storage space.

Before dropping off materials, please phone ahead as the market is currently very variable which effects what we can recycle. Ph: 6925 5004.
REMEMBER - WHEN IN DOUBT THROUGH IT OUT - into the red lid general waste bin.

Unfortunately we currently cannot take soft plastic packaging, plastic bags, plastic film and strapping as there is no market for these plastics. Also, if these items come through your yellow-lid bin they become stuck in our sorting machinery.

The good news is that your household soft plastics can be recycled through the RedCycle Program where Coles and Woolies have in-store collection bins for these items - visit the RedCycle website or view the items they accept which are listed on their in-store bins. The REPLAS company in Victoria uses these plastics to make items such as outdoor furniture.

WE CAN TAKE the following containers if brought to our Chaston Street site:

- PET (Plastic ID Code No.1) e.g soft-drink bottles

- HDPE (Plastic ID Code No. 2) e.g. milk, juice, cream and coloured plastic bottles. Please remove lids from bottles and place in recycling bin

- PP (Plastic ID Code No. 5) e.g. ice cream containers and lids

- milk and juice cartons

- glass bottles and jars (no glass ovenware, drinking glasses, microwave glass turntable, window or windscreen glass as they have a different melting point and if mixed with other glass will ruin the recycling process when batches are melted). Remove lids from glass jars and aerosol cans and place in yellow-lid bin too.

- aluminium, steel and aerosol cans (please don't flatten these containers as it reduces the effectiveness of sorting machinery such as magnets and eddy-current separators, and they can become hidden in newspaper or cardboard).

- aluminium foil if clean and squashed into a ball (with a minimum size of a very large orange) so it can be removed by our machinery. Flat sheets and small amounts of foil cannot be sorted by the eddy current.

We cannot take household appliances but we can recycle: computers and computer accessories,TVs, printers and mobile phones.

Please note the conditions on the following items:
Electrical cables - from computers
Electrical cables - if removed from electrical items

Items that should be dropped off at our Chaston Street site (and NOT delivered through the yellow-lid recycling bin as the materials will damage or become stuck in our machinery, may become entangled with other materials, are heavy to lift from a moving conveyor belt, may contain batteries and pose a fire risk) include:
- computers and accessories
- printers
- televisions
- mobile phones
- electrical cables

PLASTIC BUMPER BARS & TRUCK MUD GUARDS: we only accept polypropylene plastic, with all other metal or plastic contaminates removed such as metal screws, grill inserts, light fittings, clips, flaps, and end skirts.

SHREDDED PAPER. Please drop-off your paper that needs to be shredded as household or office shredding machines cut the paper into small pieces that are difficult to press into bales - or put your shredded paper into the green bin as it can be composted - or put onto your garden.

BATTERIES (household): We cannot recycle any batteries.

Please take your household batteries to Wagga City Council building drop-off bin, Gregadoo Waste Management Centre, Community Recycling Centres - check with your local council, Battery World or ALDI stores.

BATTERIES (vehicle): Please take to the Gregadoo Waste Management Centre or Battery World for recycling.

HOUSEHOLD RECYCLING though your yellow-lid recycling bin: please only recycle clean household containers (glass, steel, aluminium, plastic, paper and cardboard) from your kitchen, bathroom, laundry or office. It is important to remove lids and place in the recycling bin, ensure containers are empty and rinsed, and items are not tied up in a plastic bag as they cannot be processed (opened) and go to landfill.

Check Wagga Wagga City Council's 'A-Z Guide' for more recycling options on their website.
