Other ways to recycle

Most of us do our best to recycle through our yellow lid recycling bins, but did you know there are also other ways you can recycle too?

Don't forget about the NSW Government's Return and Earn program for any extra cans and bottles you may have - save some room in your recycling bin and make a few extra dollars at the same time.
