Hunter Councils conduct regular kerbside surveys of waste and recycling bins.
This helps us to develop waste strategies to improve recycling rates and to decrease waste to landfill. Let’s all do our bit for the environment and recycle right.
Recent kerbside bin surveys have shown that 20% of the material being placed in the general waste bin is recyclable and should be placed in the yellow lid bin.

Up to 4% of homes place non-accepted items in their recycling bin, these residents may find that their bin is not collected and will not be until the offending items have been removed and only on the following scheduled service day. We do not return to service non-conforming bins. So ensure your bin is collected by the following the A to Z Guide.
