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

Before dropping off materials, please phone ahead as the market is currently very variable which effects what we can recycle. Ph: 6925 5004.

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 jammed in our sorting machinery. If these items come to Kurrajong Recycling we then pay the transport costs and Gregadoo Waste Management Centre fees for them to go to landfill.

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.

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 and boxes e.g. long-life milk and fruit-juice boxes

- glass bottles and jars (no glass ovenware, drinking glasses, 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 currently 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
- vehicle batteries (lead acid)

SHREDDED PAPER. Please drop-off your paper that needs to be shredded as household or office shredding machines cut the paper into pieces that are very small and 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: We can recycle lead-acid batteries from cars and motorbikes. Also truck lead-acid batteries if not encased in steel, and computer-server batteries. We do not take Lithium and gel 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.

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.
