Making commingled recycling work for you
There are five types of items that can be placed in the commingled recycling bins:
- Rigid plastics
Items accepted in the commingled waste bin may differ across Australia as they are dependent on the capability of the local facility.
What happens to your commingled recycling after collection?
At collection, the driver will do a visual check of the recycling bin to ensure there’s no contamination – like plastic bags, food or textiles. The recyclables will then be transported to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) for processing. A combination of automated machinery and manual sorters sort the recyclables into different streams to be baled. Once baled, the recyclables are transported to onshore recyclers or exported to be turned into new products and materials.
