Your Guide to Sustainable Living: Navigating Recycling in Wyndham

Not only will this help you become an informed Western suburbs citizen, but there are a number of services that might come in handy when it comes time to move into your new home, declutter unwanted items or recycle moving boxes etc.

From bin lid changes to community programs, here’s your comprehensive guide to sustainable living in Wyndham.

Bin Lid Changes

Wyndham City is currently undergoing a  process of updating bin lid colours to meet Australian Standards and make recycling easier. As part of this initiative:

  • Your garbage bin will have a red lid
  • Your recycling bin will have a yellow lid
  • Green waste bins will still have a green lid (no change)

Not sure when your bins will get the makeover? Find out your expected changeover date by searching your address on the Wyndham City website. And keep an eye on your mailbox for a postcard detailing when to leave your bins out.

Repair and Replacement Initiatives

As Wyndham City works on the bin lid changes, they’re also on the lookout for damaged bins. If yours is tagged for repair, rest assured the Council has it under control. If it can’t be fixed, you’ll get a shiny new bin of the same size or even bigger.
