Narrabri Shire Council


With the Cleanaway contract, your bin with the Yellow Lid is for recycling. Once your recyclables from your bin are collected, they are sorted in to product categories. From there they are sent to manufacturers to be turned into brand new products.

Your recycling service saves valuable resources from being buried in landfill where they will never be used again.

Your recyclables will be collected fortnightly. 

When placing items in your recycling bin please:

  • Do not place recyclable items in plastic bags
  • Flatten cardboard
  • Rinse all containers (use your washing up water when finished)
  • Remove lids from bottles and jars. 

Bulky Waste Collection

Narrabri Shire Council offers two free scheduled Bulky Waste Collections each year. This service helps households dispose of large items that cannot fit into the wheelie bins and unwanted materials such as mattresses and e-waste. 

Plastic Bag recycling

Plastic bags can be recycled by taking them to the plastic bag disposal point located inside the store near the registers at Woolworth's Narrabri. This facility is an initiative of Woolworth's and is designed for domestic use, not large bulk deposits. Please contact Woolworth's on 02 6792 6005 for further information.
