Waste and Recycling Videos
From what to do with your soft plastics and what goes in your yellow bin through to composting tips and how to recycle right – check out our latest waste and recycling videos.
Your scheduled bulky waste collection is for large unwanted items that do not fit into your red lid garbage bin. Please consider reuse options such as donating items to charity stores, selling online, holding a garage sale or organising a free pick up service by The Bower.
We have successfully delivered over 11,000 recycling caddies to almost 90 per cent of multi-unit households in the Hornsby Shire, providing residents with a simple way to transfer recyclables to communal recycling bins and minimise plastic bag contamination.
