Every can, piece of paper, cardboard box, plastic container and glass bottle we put in our yellow lid wheelie bin can make a difference.
Check out our Thank you for Recycling Right guide and recycle the following items in your yellow lid wheelie bin:
Paper and cardboard
Glass bottles and jars
Plastic containers including milk and juice containers
Check the container for a symbol that looks like this:
Where does your recycling go?
The recycling truck empties your yellow lid bin each fortnight and takes your recyclables to the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) located right here in Parkhurst, Rockhampton. Check out the below video to find out how your recyclables are sorted out at the MRF.
Recycling Hero School/Material Recovery Facility Visits
To learn about recycling right, teachers within the Rockhampton Region can request a classroom visit from our very own Recycling Hero! The Recycling Hero encourages students to ‘sort it, clean it, crush it’ to recycle right and tell them what happens to our recycling at the Material Recovery Facility. A visit to the Material Recovery Facility with our Recycling Hero can be requested if transport to and from the facility is arranged by the school.
To request a visit, simply visit the Customer Forms page and fill in the Waste and Recycling Education Presentation Request Form.
Follow the adventures of the Recycling Heroes below and how they recycle right to wipe out contamination!
