THANK YOU ENCOUNTER BAY AND VICTOR HARBOR for RECYCLING RIGHT !
As a part of the Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority’s bin inspection and education program there were 12 visits to around 450 properties in your area September – December 2018.
So how has recycling, waste and green organics bin usage improved?
|The ENVIRONMENT THANKS YOU – Victor Harbor and Encounter Bay|
|In the City of Victor Harbor we found:|

It shows that we can all improve our recycling efforts! REMEMBER

A few RECYCLING tips to remember
- Soft plastics such as bags, cling film, bubble wrap CANNOT be recycled through your kerbside recycling bin – soft plastic must go in the general waste bin – many supermarkets provide soft plastics recycling collection bins
- Hard or rigid plastic containers can be recycled in the kerbside recycle bin
- Tissues and paper towel CANNOT be recycled – place small amounts in the green organics bin or larger amounts in your waste bin
- Foam: polystyrene food trays, packaging and wrap CANNOT be recycled – please place it in your waste bin
