Burwood Council encourages residents to recycle right and provides kerbside mixed recycling (paper, plastics, glass and metal). We offer free recycling signs for shared bin rooms in apartment blocks and can provide recycling flyers in a range of languages to help residents recycle right. Please phone Burwood Council's Environment and Health Team on 9911 9911 to request signage or flyers for your apartment block. 

Burwood Council also provides mobile phone and battery drop-off boxes and e-waste drop-off days.

We also encourage residents to use the Fridge Buy Back program and the regular e-waste drop-off days at the Council Depot.
