Resource Recovery Satchel

Place these items in your resource recovery collection satchel and then put in your recycling bin:

  • household batteries
  • reading glasses
  • printer cartridges
  • CDs and DVDs
  • X-rays
  • wine corks

These free satchels are available for collection from customer service outlets such as the Libraries, the Waste Centre, Council Customer Service Centre and Council Community Facilities. 

In June 2017, every urban household within the shire received a recovery satchel in their mailbox. This was part of a campaign to boost recyling and give our shire's waste a second chance! Media release - Give your waste a second chance - 8 June 2017
