If you CAN REMEMBER 3 THINGS – you can make a big impact on the environment
Remember just 3 things and you can make a difference to your waste environmental footprint -:
- recycling must be loose – don’t bag your recycling in plastic bags
- soft plastics can be recycled at your local Woolworths or Coles supermarket – but is not recyclable in the kerbside recycling bin (if you have no other option soft plastic bags and cling film wrap must be disposed of in the general waste – blue lid (mainland) or red lid (Kangaroo Island) bin)
- food organic waste (leftovers and plate scrapings) is best disposed of in the green organics bin (where applicable) or home compost bin wherever possible.
Sorting your waste at home into the correct waste streams and disposing of it in the most appropriate bin is possibly the cheapest and most immediate impact you can have on reducing your environmental footprint.
