Recycle Right - Snap and Check

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


Each year hundreds of new products and packaging enter the marketplace.

To make sure we are recycling the right items in our yellow-lidded recycling bins, council has set up a snap and check service.

Simply take a photo of the item you are unsure about, upload it to the Connecting Mackay webpage and our Waste Officers will let you know which bin the item goes in.

Each time we recycle right, we are reducing the amount of waste going to landfill and creating a more sustainable region to live in.

Watch the video above, to see how easy it is.
