What does and does not
go in the yellow top bin
RECYCLING bins are easily iden-
tified with a bright yellow lid, which
features a list of items suitable for
Using the recycling bin is simple --
just drop your recyclables in it and
wheel it out.
You do not have to separate or tie
your papers and cardboard.
However, do not use any plastic
bags in your recycling bin.
What should I put in the
First note that the majority of the
recyclables are sorted by hand.
For this reason, certain recyclable
items cannot go into the recycle bin;
ie shredded paper.
This is impossible to hand sort
and better going in the garden and
food organics collection bin.
Here is what we
• newspapers, paper, magazines
• glass bottles and jars
• plastic containers, such as from
soft drinks, milk, ice-cream, marga-
rine and yoghurt
• aluminium, such as soft drink
cans and foil trays
• and steel cans.
Please rinse all containers out be-
fore putting them in the yellow top bin.
These items are sorted by hand.
Please make sure they are clean.
As these items are hand sorted,
small items such as plastic bottle
tops cannot be sorted.
Recycling makes money for charity
FURNITURE and any other reus-
able products can be dropped off
locally at the Lion's Club Depot in
Dunsmore Road, known locally as
the Steptoe Emporium.
Money raised from the sale of
these goods goes back into the local
Unwanted books can be recycled
at Bill's Book Shed, at Melaleuca
Lodge, where they are sold to raise
funds for this Aged Care facility.
Clothes and bric-a-brac can be re-
cycled at any of the three op shops
in Cowes, or the one at San Remo.
Rotary, the Salvo's and St Vinnies
all have retail locations in Thomp-
son Avenue; and Bass Coast Health
Op Shop in San Remo is located in
Back Beach Road.
The funds raised go back into
each of these organisations, to help
with the valuable community work
Most recycled aluminum is used to make new cans.
From the time a can arrives in a recycling facility, it takes just sixty days to melt it down, turn it into a
new can, fill it with a new beverage and place it back on store shelves. Recycled cans are also used to make
airplane parts, building facades and bicycles.
Don't waste those drink cans
If you wish to recycle these items
place them in a clear plastic con-
tainer, such as a juice or cordial
bottle, then once the bottle is full
of lids, screw the lid on and place
complete in the recycle bin.
This way it will be sorted as mixed
plastic, even plastic bread tags can
go in this way!
Do not place in yellow bins:
• plastic bags, plastic wrap
• shredded paper (this can go in
your garden organics bin)
• car parts
• foam rubber
• sharps (needles and/or sy-
• nappies (even if there is a re -
cycling symbol on the box!),
• whitegoods ie toasters
Geoff Huitema and the team at Wheel-A-Waste/Phillip Island Waste
and Recycling Services launched their own, shire-wide, kerbside,
green waste collection service earlier this year and all you have to
do is call them on 5672 2056 and order your bin.
