Bin Inspection Program

We're proud that Darebin residents are good recyclers. Over the years what can and cannot be recycled has changed slightly, which can make it confusing. We want to make sure that we are communicating these changes clearly with our community. So to help us learn from you, Council will be conducting a bin inspection program starting end of April 2021, to find out what items we need to communicate better about. Together we can continue to recycling right, and reduce the environmental impacts from our waste. To find out what can and can’t go in your recycling bin, please see information below. For more information about the Bin Inspection Program, read our Bin Inspection Program FAQ.
