Hi Wesley

Thank you for your question and for including a photo with your enquiry.

The “safety cone” you were searching for is a great example of community language and the different names we all use for everyday household items. We currently do not have this item listed in the Recycle Mate database, however, we will review this with the team to add it and “witches hat” and “pylon” to ensure future users find what they’re looking for.

A safety cone is not recyclable in your home kerbside recycling bin. The kerbside recycling system is designed to handle your everyday packaging waste like disposable bottles, jars and containers, so other plastic household items are unable to be processed.

If your safety cone is still in good condition that’s suitable for resale use Recycle Mate to find a charity shop or other location nearby accepting donations.

If your item is damaged and not in good condition it will need to be placed in your general waste bin. If the safety cone is large be sure to check it won’t get lodged inside your bin causing a partial empty.

If you happen to find any local recycling or re-use options, we would love to hear about it!

Thank you for your recycling enquiry. Every question helps us build a stronger platform for providing better recycling solutions in Australia.
