ACCEPTED
MATERIALS

WHAT WE'LL TAKE AND WHAT WE WONT

You'll find that we accept items that your traditional reycling stream does not, this is because Rabbit Recycling puts in the time

and effort to deconstruct objects, sort by material type and source products for their further reuse, upcycling or re-entry

into manufacturing as raw materials.

In light of the time and effort we spend, please take the time to review our Cleaning Guidelines page.

Additionally, check out our Rabbit Reminders page. It's an archive of our instagram posts that help explain how best to use our service.
