What you can recycle in your green bin - food waste
(check with your council first before recycling your food waste in the green bin, if they don’t accept it, set up a home compost bin)
What you can't recycle in your green bin
*Some councils accept compostable bags (certified to Australian standard AS4736). Check with your council first before using them.
Why can’t compostable packaging go in your green bin? Can you recycle mussel shells? Find the answers to these and lots of other questions about using your green bin.
All participating council collection services allow grass clippings, weeds (including ivy), vines, leaves, plant cuttings and small branches to be recycled. Check your local council’s program for other items accepted in your green waste bin.
