Help us recycle more in Campbelltown

The Bin Chicken recycling program is a free program that motivates our local community to recycle their drink containers. The program has collection points at day cares and sporting clubs in Campbelltown – we also collect from residents’ homes. The 10c container refund is invested into The Bin Chicken Community Pantry & Recycling Hub. The Hub is free for the community to access any time, it provides pantry staples and is a drop off point for hard to recycle items.

Our Mission is to divert waste from landfill to leave the environment a better place for our kids and generations to come
