Kerbside Recycling

Kerbside recycling is one of our primary services across the South Coast. Recycling is vital, and it all begins with you.

Collected across the region, your plastic, glass, cardboard, paper, and more are brought to the recycling factory in Bomaderry. There, the items are sorted and divided efficiently by a smart system of magnets, trommels, and other tools. Quality control is assured by highly trained staff members who oversee the process. Once fully sorted into usable product categories, they are compressed and then sent towards waiting manufacturers or others who will use the materials to create items of all kinds.
