Council is a collection partner for MobileMuster, an organisation who provides a free mobile phone recycling program in Australia and is committed to raising awareness and educating the community on repair, reuse and recycling of mobile phones.
Community members can drop off old unwanted mobile phones at Council's Administration Building, 46-48 Maitland Street, Narrabri or the Narrabri Waste Management Facility, located at intersection of Yarrie Lake Road and Dump Road, Narrabri.
During the 2019/2020 financial year, MobileMuster collected 106 tonnes of mobile phone components for recycling which saved 41 tonnes of CO2 emissions and conserved 209 tonnes of mineral resources being mined.
Council contributed 6kg to the above results and encourages Narrabri Shire residents to assist in increasing our involvement this coming financial year by dropping off any unwanted mobile phones to the locations listed above.

Residents eligible for a service will receive 3 garbage bins.
Residents have the option of a 140L or 240L sized garbage bin. Any waste that is not hazardous can be placed in your garbage bin. However residents should endeavour to minimise the amount of waste put into the garbage bin by recycling whenever possible.
Residents have the option of a 240L or 360L sized recycling bin. Narrabri Shire encourages the recycling of empty steel cans, aerosol and aluminium cans, plastic bottles and containers, milk and juice cartons, glass bottles and jars, paper and cardboard.
It is vital for the recycling process that only the correct items go into the recycling bin. Incorrect items can cause many problems in processing and may result in recoverable resources going to landfill. It is essential that recyclable items are not placed in plastic bags. Plastic bags can do damage to the machines that sort the recyclables.
The green bin is for the collection of suitable garden and food waste. Residents should use this service as much as possible when disposing of their small tree prunings, flowers, weeds and grass clippings at home. Residents can also dispose of thin branches up to 1 metre long.
