Waste and recycling signage and resources

Educational Bin Signage

Hornsby Shire Council has developed a range of free educational signs and stickers to help our residents recycle and dispose of waste correctly. The resources have been developed specifically for residential apartments in the Hornsby Shire Council area. Signs are a great way to help residents understand what items belong in each bin.

Building / Strata Managers, Building Owners or Owners Corporations and Cleaners/Caretakes can request the new bin room signage by contacting Councils Waste Hotline on 13 70 30 or waste@hornsby.nsw.gov.au. Please note this service is only for apartment buildings in the Hornsby Shire Council area.


Real Estate Agents

Real Estate Agents can request copies of Council’s new Waste and Recycling Services Guide, for distribution to new tenants.

For more information please contact Council’s Waste Hotline on 13 70 30 or email waste@hornsby.nsw.gov.au

This project is a NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, Waste Less Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
