Three Bin Collection Service in the Richmond Valley Shire
WEEKLY - Green Lidded Food and Garden Organics Collection Service
FORTNIGHTLY - Yellow Lidded Recycling Collection Service
FORTNIGHTLY - (alternate fortnight to recycling) – Red Lidded Landfill Collection Service
Why the three bins?
We all need to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill - it’s simple as that. Keeping food waste out of landfill is one of the easiest things we can do to help the environment.
Since the introduction of the new collection service Richmond Valley residents have help divert 3000 tonnes of food and garden organics from landfill… that is 500 tonnes more than expected. This is a fantastic effect but we still have a bit of a way to go, with our 2016 composition audit still showing that 26% of what is in our red lidded landfill bin is food organics.
Our Food and Garden organics is processed locally at Lismore’s Waste Facility where the waste is shredded and pasteurised into certified organic compost which is then suitable for use by organic farmers and producers.

Recycling more benefits our local community, as well as being better for our environment.
