Recycling, garden organics and waste bins
Recycling, garden organics and waste bins

Over the past three years, City of Canada Bay has had a major focus on Resource Recovery, Waste Minimisation and Management. We have developed and implemented programs, resources and events that have improved environmental outcomes and increased resource recovery, which has the potential to save residents hundreds of thousands of dollars.
We aimed to:

  • Reduce food waste in the red lidded waste bin
  • Recover recyclables lost in the red lidded waste bin
  • Reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill
  • Reduce the number of incorrect items (contamination) in the green lidded garden organics and yellow lidded recycling bins
  • Reuse items which are being placed out for disposal during the Bulk Household Collection.

Over the last three years, with the help of the community, Council achieved these aims. To see the results of the last three years, click here

We developed the below target areas with unique logos to help you. Check in regularly and click the icons for more detailed information, competitions, free workshops and resources.
