Recycling is the process of collecting and treating waste that is used as raw material to produce the same or similar non-waste products. Or in simpler terms, when you recycle something, it is reused to make something new.
How does recycling occur?
The recycling process involves collecting and transporting recycled materials; Sorting out the collected materials; Consolidation and transfer of materials and finally material processing.
The roller collection system allows Australian households to dispose of normal waste such as paper, glass, juice cans, steel cans, milk containers and more.
However, there are some wastes that are not accepted by the local council for recycling on board.
The most common examples of non-recyclable waste are plastic bags, disposable diapers, and ceramics, cooking utensils, oven-resistant glass, light bulbs, broken drinking glasses, medical mugs, B3 and B3 liquid waste.
However, because every station is different, it is important that you match your station to know which material is receiving and which is not.
