Bin room signs

Bin room signage can help to remind residents what goes in each bin. There is one sign for each of the 4 bins.

How to use: Install the signs on the walls where bins are stored, at just above eye level or high enough not to be covered when bin lids are open. Liquid Nails can be used to hang the signs.
Dimensions and material: A2 corflute for all except for the Moving Out/Spring Cleaning sign which is laminated.




Bin stickers

Bin stickers are useful reminders for what goes in each bin. They are available for blue, red, green and yellow bins.

How to use: Apply one sticker to the top of the bin lid. Clean the bin lid prior to placing the sticker and press down firmly when applying.
Dimensions and material: 210mm x 190mm weatherproof sticker

No plastic bag stickers

‘No Plastic Bags’ sticker reminds residents that soft plastics or bagged items are not accepted in the recycling bins. Plastic bags clog up recycling equipment and cannot be recycled in most recycling plants.

How to use: Apply one sticker to your recycling bin lids (both the yellow and blue lids) and place it next to the main bin sticker describing what goes in the bin.
Dimensions and material: 115mm diameter round weather-proof sticker


No junk mail stickers

‘No Junk Mail’ can help to reduce the amount of promotional material put into mailboxes.

How to use: Apply one sticker to your letterbox taking care not to cover any unit or house numbers.
Dimensions and material: 90mm x 45mm rectangular weather-proof sticker


Flyer and common area posters

Small posters in common areas can remind tenants about correct waste and recycling disposal.

How to use: Place posters on walls in common areas such as foyers or lifts, or distribute hard copies to residents through their mailboxes. Alternatively, download the files and send them to residents when required.
Dimensions and material: A4 size paper posters. Not for outdoor use.




Helpful for new residents in the building to understand how recycling works and how to contact Council for hard rubbish collection through Council’s clean up service.

Dimensions and material: A4 folded brochure



Reusable recycling collection bags

Colour coded reusable tote bags can help residents store their different recyclable materials separately in their apartment, making it easier to recycle them right in the bin room and avoid using plastic bags. The Reusable Recycling Storage Bags are easy to wash in the kitchen sink.

How to use: Provide one blue and one yellow Reusable Recycling Storage Bag as well as an instructional flyer to each resident
Dimensions and material: 44.5 x 30.5cm made from 100 per cent recyclable polypropylene


Chute stickers

Buildings with garbage chutes can place Chute Stickers on the chute doors or near the chutes to notify users of items accepted in the chutes. This will assist to prevent blockages.

How to use: Place stickers on chute doors so they are easily visible.
