If something doesn’t go to plan 🙁

  • If your bags aren’t picked up before 3pm on your scheduled day, contact RecycleSmart at [email protected] and they’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
  • If you need to change or edit your booking, log in to your account on the RecycleSmart website or app. Changes need to be made by 4pm the day before your scheduled pick-up.
  • If you forget to put out your bags, RecycleSmart will be in touch with you to reschedule your booking.
  • If items were left in your bag, they are likely not accepted. RecycleSmart will contact you with more information. 

Why we’re doing this

We’re providing residents with a convenient way to recycle tricky items that don’t belong in kerbside rubbish or recycling bins.

The doorstep recycling service will help us reach our goal of zero waste to landfill by 2030.
