♻️💚🌏 Mr Yellow helps Central Coast residents better understand their waste collection and recycling ♻️💚🌏
You've just moved house and now have a pile of cardboard boxes! What should you do with them? 📦📦📦📦📦
 
You have 3 main options:
 
1: Keep the boxes . Will you be moving again soon? Can you store them somewhere safe and compact so you can reuse them when you need to move? Can you use them for storage?
 
2. Sell them or give them away. People are always moving - if the boxes are good quality still, try selling or giving them away through online selling services such as Gumtree or Facebook.
 
3. Dispose of them. This really should be your last option and if disposal is the way you are going - then you really want to recycle them. ♻💚🌏

If you place them out for a bulk kerbside collection they will not be recycled! They will end up as landfill. 😕 

Your options are - put a few in your recycling bin each week (make sure you tear them up and flatten them to save space in your bin) or make a trip out to your local waste management facility to drop them off for free recycling (however we recommend holding off on this option until current stay at home orders are lifted).
 
When it comes to waste management, let’s get it sorted, because together, we can make a sustainable future possible.

Did you know that placing unwanted items outside of your property/complex without booking in a Bulk Kerbside Service is considered Illegal dumping and can incur fines of up to $5,000?

Leaving items on the kerbside for extending periods of time can not only be harmful to the environment but can also pose a hazard to others.

Keep your street neat and book your bulk kerbside service in  before placing your items out on the street via: 1coast.com.au/keepyourstreetneat

It's National Recycling Week! The perfect time to realise that putting the wrong stuff in your recycling bin really stinks! 
​
​We know that some of you have larger families, bigger lawns and some of you may indulge a little more as well. This can mean that the standard bin system that Council provides may not work for you.
​
If you are finding your current bin service is not providing you enough disposal space and your bins are overflowing, the first step is to see if you can reduce and recycle more of your waste to help with this.
​
Check out our website as a starting point with this: https://1coast.com.au/other-waste-and-recycling-services/reducing-your-waste/
​
​If you are recycling everything, reducing your waste and your bins are still overflowing, you should look into upgrading your bin service. ​Central Coast Council offers residents the choice of  upgrading the size of your Red Lid or Yellow Lid Bins as part of your residential waste service. You can also get additional quantities of any of the bins, so you green thumbs can have 2 or more green lid garden bins if needed!
​
Only property owners can request an upgrade or additional bins. If you rent the premises, you will need to contact the managing agent or the owner to discuss these changes. Please note that larger and additional bins do cost more  on the rates for your property.
​
​Visit our website for further information including fees and charges: https://1coast.com.au/bin-collection/additional-bins/

It's National Recycling Week ♻️💚🌏 ​A great opportunity to make sure you are recycling right! ​Share this one with your friends - everyone needs to know! Tissues & Paper Towels CANNOT be recycled in your Yellow Lid Recycle Bin!!!! ​🙅‍♀️🙅‍♂️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♂️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♂️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♂️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♂️ ​​🤧🤧 Tissues should not go in the Yellow Lid Bin. Paper towels, napkins, and tissues are all paper products; however they are never recyclable. Because they usually come in contact with food wastes and possibly bodily fluids, they are not able to be “cleaned” during the recycling process and should not be with other “clean”
paper waste like magazines and paper. Always throw these items into the Red Lid Bin.
​
​Alternatively, you could try using washable cloths and handkerchiefs that can be used over and over again. 👏👏👏 ​
