IMPORTANT UPDATE

The Northern Sydney Community Recycling Centre has re-opened after lockdown. It is operating with a COVIDSAFE Plan and some queueing is to be expected. Visitors must comply with NSW Health Guidelines. Site check in, masks and social distancing are required.  

 

HANG ON TO THE BAG

NSROC is sending a message to residents of Northern Sydney to keep plastic bags and other soft plastics out of their recycling bins. Whether you have a Yellow lid bin or both a Yellow lid bin and a Blue lid the message is simple: Hang on to the Bag.  

If you put your recyclables in your kerbside bin still in a plastic bag, you’ve wasted your efforts because both the bag and all its contents end up in landfill. But you can make a difference by emptying the bag first into the recycling bin and disposing of the bag into your garbage bin.

For two months 35 buses in northern Sydney helped our councils spread the word with posters on the back windows.

The project is a NSW Environment Protection Authority, Waste Less, Recycle More Initiative, funded from the waste levy.
