Recycling solutions for apartments

Improving high rise recycling

Gold Coast welcomes 11.5 million visitors annually and has around 40,000 available guest rooms. More than 18 per cent of the city's residents live in high rise apartments where these buildings traditionally have lower rates of recycling than single dwellings, townhouses or small apartment blocks. A key factor is the perceived inconvenience of accessing recycling bins. Together, we can help reduce the waste sent to our landfills.

High Rise Recycling Project

City of Gold Coast's High Rise Recycling Project is helping apartment buildings improve the amount, and quality, of recycling collected. Participating buildings make simple changes like installing new recycling bins, placing bins in new locations, putting up signs and providing residents with educational materials.

Can my building participate?

Participating buildings receive:

  • an initial recycling system assessment
  • recommendations on how to improve the recycling system
  • assistance in implementing recommendations including free signs, educational material and recycling support such as recycling bags
  • a follow-up site visit to check progress and receive feedback
