Recycle Mate

Recycle Mate

The Recycle Mate app was recently launched by the NSW Government and the Australian Council of Recycling. It will make it easier to recycle every day and help to reduce contamination in kerbside recycling.

How does it work?

  1. Download Recycle Mate free from the App Store or get it on Google Play.
  2. Take a photo of the item you are looking to recycle.
  3. The app will sift through its database of over 250 items, and tell you which bin it goes in.

The Recycle Mate app database has information for every council area in NSW. Whether you’re at home, on a holiday, or visiting family out of the local area, your location will be used to provide the right information.
