It has been three years since the initial launch of the four-bin service across the shire. Thanks to all of the amazing efforts of each individual sorting their waste, we have achieved a diversion of 74% of waste from landfill, some of the highest in the state.
In our recent survey 'Help us make recycling easier', 79% of respondents were happy that Council has a four-bin system to recycle most of their household waste and reduce their environmental footprint.
42% of respondents in the survey said they want to sort waste correctly but get confused.
A letter and handy brochure to put on the fridge and help you sort your waste is currently being delivered to all households. Over the next few months you'll also see lots of handy hints and information shared through the state-wide 'Small acts, big impacts' campaign.
