Rubbish Removal Punchbowl – Never Recycle these in your Kerbside Bin!

Rubbish removal in Punchbowl and everywhere else in the Sydney Metropolitan Area (and Australia-wide for that matter) is the responsibility of every single resident and worker. We are both actively and passively encouraged in so many ways to consume less and to create less rubbish; to recycle more; and to dispose of rubbish and unwanted stuff in an environmentally responsible and mindful way.

Many of us have some level of confusion about what can and what can’t be put into the council kerbside recycling bins we all have at our homes…

These items can’t ever be placed into your kerbside recycling bin – while some of them can be recycled, you need to contact your local council or EPA to learn where they can be recycled:

  • Wet Paper
  • Used paper napkins, paper towels, serviettes, tissues, toilet paper
  • Juice boxes
  • Any paper or cardboard with a laminated surface
  • Any paper or cardboard with a plastic coating (e.g. milk cartons, frozen food boxes)
  • Used take-out food containers. These include including pizza boxes and cardboard Chinese food containers. The oil, grease, and other food contaminants make them unsuitable for recycling.
  • Plastic grocery bags
  • Plastic bottle caps from soda bottles, water bottles, detergent bottles, milk bottles, etc – the bottles themselves can be recycled; the caps or lids can not
  • Styrofoam – not only it is completely unrecyclable, but it is also very highly flammable and is very dangerous in recycling facilities
  • Pyrex glass
  • Window glass
  • Mirrors
  • Ceramics including crockery and cookware
  • Light bulbs and globes
  • Spectacles including sunglasses – take these to your local optometrist for donation
  • Wire coat hangers – your local dry cleaner may accept for reuse
  • Shredded paper (compost this or donate it to a vet or pet store)
  • Heavily dyed paper or cardboard
  • Electrical goods and cabling
  • Batteries
  • Nappies and other sanitary items
  • Wood
  • Clothing and textile materials including sheets and towels
  • Food waste
  • Gift bows and ribbons
  • Motor oil and hazardous waste containers
