The future of council recycling is in question but this doesn't mean that households should give away their good recycling habits and  send everything to landfill.

Locally, we have many alternative recycling services and with your help we will create a directory of where to send out household waste for recycling.

Yarra Ranges Fortnightly Council Recycling:

  • Cardboard boxes

  • Steel cans including aerosol cans, aluminium cans, clean aluminium foil and pie trays

  • Glass bottles and jars (including lids)

  • Milk and juice cartons

  • Books, envelopes, brochures, newspapers and magazines

  • Plastic bottles, containers, trays, plant pots with codes 1-7

  • Pots and pans

  • Plastic Toys
