Council encourages recycling as part of its Towards Zero Waste program, and provides yellow recycling bins for the disposal of various household packaging and containers.
E-waste items can be dropped off at no charge at Council's Eumundi Road Resource & Recovery Centre (tip). E-waste includes: computers, laptops, mobile phones, TVs, games consoles, DVDs/CDs, cords/cables.Please do not place E-waste in your recycle (yellow lid) bin.
Polystyrene can be dropped off at Council's Resource and Recovery Centres for recycling. Council has recently partnered with Rockcote, a local business that turns polystyrene into innovative building products. Please do not place polystyrene in the recycling (yellow lid) bin.
The garden waste bin service is available at a low annual fee for garden waste, so that garden waste can be recycled into mulch and provided free of charge to local residents.
A new garden waste bin recycling service commencing in September 2017 will see residents in urban areas of the shire automatically receiving a garden waste recycling bin. For information please visit the new Garden Waste Recycling Bin Service page.
Council's A-Z Handy Guide to Recycling details what items can be recycled at Noosa's Resource & Recovery Centre at Eumundi Road and which bin to use for a host of common household waste items.
