Know Your Recycling Campaign

Sustainability Victoria’s Know Your Recycling campaign encourages Victorians to keep the top five contaminants out of their recycling bin – bagged recycling, soft plastics, expanded polystyrene, food waste, and clothing and other textiles.

The community’s interest in the campaign has seen a huge increase in traffic to the Know Your Recycling website where you can type in an item to search or scroll through images to find what they are looking for.

As well as the ‘Can I recycle this?’ item search tool, the website includes information about:

  • the top 5 items to keep out of the recycling bin
  • help with your recycling
  • why your recycling matters
  • information about recycling symbols
  • where your recycling goes
  • find your local council.
