Kerbside Recycling Bin Assessments

There’s been a 14% reduction in soft plastic contamination of our kerbside recycling: Thanks for being such a Good SORT!   Please keep soft plastic such as bags, bubble wrap and cling wrap out of your kerbside recycling and let’s aim for zero contamination in the next Kerbside Recycling Bin Assessment starting 11 September.

Bin Assessment


Kerbside Recycling Bin Assessments are on again.  The random checks look for contaminants such as soft plastics, foil food bags, foam meat trays, polystyrene, metal and electrical items.  We use the results to plan future waste education activities because contaminated recycling can end up in landfill.  Thanks for being a Good SORT by reducing, re-using and recycling!
