THANK YOU – Strathalbyn and Mount Compass – Bin tagging Results are IN!
|As a part of the Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority’s bin inspection and education program there were 6 visits to nearly 600 properties in the Strathalbyn area April – July 2018. So how has recycling, waste and green organics bin usage improved?|
|In the Strathalbyn area we found:|
|General Waste Bins containing recyclable items||Recycling Bins contaminated with non-recyclable items||Green Organic Bins contaminated with non-compostable items|
|It shows that we can all improve our recycling efforts! A key issue for Strathalbyn was that there was still a lot of recyclable materials in general waste bins – taking up space and going to landfill when it could be recycled!|
AND WITH RESULT JUST IN
|In the Mt Compass area we found:|
|General Waste Bins containing recyclable items||Recycling Bins
contaminated with non-recyclable items
|Green Organic Bins contaminated with non-compostable items|
Again many general waste bins in Mount Compass contained recyclable materials and green waste – taking up precious space in the blue lid bin and landfill when it could be recycled!
Local children embraced the RECYCLE RIGHT and RECYCLE MORE message as a part of this educational program and left lovely notes for the bin tagging team. One family even made Recycle person from salvaged materials – a washing basket and pool noodles formed the majority of the RECYCLE PERSON.
The following message is ” I love Mum, Iced Coffee and recycling!”
This project is jointly funded by Green Industries South Australia, Alexandrina Council and Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority as a part of the ongoing education and information program to assist residents with their recycling efforts.
