As easy
as Kerby.


Use our stupendously handy guide to sort your waste as best you can.


If you've misplaced the guide, well... sort your waste as best you can.


We believe in you.


Try make sure your waste is as dry as possible.


Stick in a bag. Preferably a Kerby bag. If not, preferably not a black bag. But, hey, if it is, so be it. No judgies.


Take it out to the kerb like the magnificent hero you are.


As long as it's by 8am.

Kerby Recycling.png


Recyclable dry, clean waste.

In this bin goes all your mixed recyclable, dry waste.

Like plastic, glass, paper and aluminium products.

Try avoid any contaminated recyclables and please wrap any broken glass.

Compostable if it grows, in it goes.

Like coffee grounds, vegetables, fruit, bread and eggshells.

Avoid bones, fish, dairy products, meats, oils and fats. And always use sunscreen. Plus eat your vegetables. And call mom and tell her you love her.

Kerby General Waste.png

Not Kerby

General not sure? Throw here.

This includes any wet or food contaminated waste, and things like tissues, which cannot be recycled. Oh, and nappies. Nappies = gross.
