Many councils do not recycle plastic bags and polystyrene boxes.
Or, charge you to recycle computers, printers and television sets.
But, you can find where to recycle almost everything at:
For example some Coles Supermarkets, in the CBD and inner suburbs, have free bins for recycling:
Shopping bags including reusable 'green’ bags
Fresh fruit and vegie bags
Biscuit packaging and confectionery packaging
Rice and pasta packets and frozen food bags
Most Officeworks have bins where you can put up to 3 printer cartridges at any one time.
And, at some Officeworks, such as the Officeworks at 566 Bridge Rd, Richmond, 03 9413 9500:
'Customers can take up to 5 items from computer systems, including desktops, laptops, computer mice, monitors, printers, scanners, multifunction printers, keyboards, computer power supplies, printed circuit boards, motherboards, network cards, disks and CD drives.'
'This site is part of the National Computer Recycling Scheme – all households and small businesses can recycle computers for free at this site.'
