Upsize your yellow recycling bin
We offer all residents the option to have a large 360-litre recycling bin (50 per cent larger than the current recycling bin) to help increase the amount of material recycled and decrease the amount placed in your waste bins.
Kerbside waste and recycling audits have shown that when a recycling bin is filled at a household the overflow recyclable material is disposed of in the waste bin instead of being recycled.
Our Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) allows us to recycle almost all of our waste, so it makes sense that you may need a larger recycling bin to cope with the volume.
Residents have to pay a one-off $53 swap fee for the 360-litre bin.
Phone us on 1300 87 83 87 or visit Council's Corporate Centre at 43 Oliver Avenue, Goonellabah, to arrange this service and pay your fee. No additional waste collection fees apply.
