remove liquids and food from items before placing in recycling MGB;
flatten boxes; and
use a reusable bag to store your recyclables, then empty the contents into the recycling MGB.
Recyclables from Livingstone Shire are sent to the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). The MRF plays a vital role in minimising our environmental footprint, as it ensures that recyclable materials are not sent to landfill but are processed and made into new products to be reused.
A recycling MGB will not be collected if it is contaminated with non-recyclable waste.
