Managing waste properly is one way we can all contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable Shire.
Recycling - get it right on bin night
Towong Shire residents are good at recycling, but you'd be surprised at how many recyclables get thrown in the rubbish bin and end up in landfill.
For example, if you put recyclables in plastic bags, they'll end up in landfill. Put them loose in your recycle bin if you want them to end up in the right place.
Most people think of the kitchen when recycling, but you can recycle from every room in the house – from your bathroom and laundry to your lounge and study.
Get to know your recyclables at Recycling Victoria.
