How does it work?
Curby partners with Councils to collect targeted materials such as Soft Plastics and Coffee Capsules from the community via the existing yellow recycling bin.
Households who download the Curby app and register, simply collect the targeted material in a bag and when they’re ready to recycle…they attach a CurbyTag and place it in their yellow bin!
Curby’s fun and interactive app has a built in QR scanner so you can scan each bag before you recycle, follow your bags journey and help us measure the success of the Curby program!
Once your bag reaches the sorting facility, IQ Renew then separates your bag from the other recycling materials and their recycling journey continues where they are fashioned into “new” materials to be recycled once again!
Since launching in November 2020 we have recovered more than 32,000 kg of soft plastics and aluminium coffee capsules with the help of 15,000+ Curby members.
With a permanent program in Central Coast Council and multiple trial programs operating across NSW, we’re continuously improving how we collect, sort and process materials as we seek to expand the program nationally.
