Media Release - 25 May 2022

Campbelltown residents are being encouraged to think about what is going into their recycling and garden bins on collection day to ensure their waste is in the right bin.

Council’s Resource Recovery Engagement Officers will soon start the first phase of a bin inspection program to identify items that don’t belong in recycling and garden waste bins.

Phase one of the program will be carried out over the next few months, where inspectors will be tagging bins that contain incorrect items and providing information to help clarify what can go in the different bins, and what cant. Bins will still be emptied on regular collection days.

During the second phase of the program, bins that are found to contain the wrong items will be stickered and not emptied. Residents will then need to remove the incorrect items before the bin is emptied. The community will be informed before the start of this phase.

Common items that are incorrectly placed in recycling bins include:

  • soft plastics
  • bagged items
  • used tissues and paper towels
  • food waste

Common items that are incorrectly placed in garden waste bins include:

  • food waste
  • paper waste
  • general household waste
