How to Recycle Right at USYD

Certain plastic products that cannot be recycled in domestic council bins can now be recycled on university campus.

Do you have any plastic products that can’t be recycled in domestic council bins?

At this stage, they’re collecting cleaning, beauty and dental related packaging but the items need to be EMPTY and CLEAN.
