Recyclable Resources

As a general guide, our present household waste is made of the following:

  • Paper & Cardboard – 20%
  • Plastic - 15%
  • Organic – 35%
  • Glass – 11%
  • Textile – 12%
  • Metal – 7%

You can decrease the amount of waste going into the landfill by separating your rubbish and recycling and dumping them accordingly.

McLeans Pit is split into two parts:

​LandfillFor general refuse, which goes over the weighbridge and is charged accordingly.
​Recycling centreOpen to the public to receive approved empty and clean recyclables as well as certain greenwaste. There is a materials recovery facility (MRF) on-site which sorts the recyclables.
