Glass re­cy­cle mes­sage grows

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

MIN­DARIE Re­gional Coun­cil is rolling out its no glass cam­paign by putting stickers on rub­bish bins and fly­ers in letterboxes.

The cam­paign aims to re­duce glass con­tam­i­na­tion in compost pro­duced from gen­eral house­hold waste at the Neer­abup re­source re­cov­ery fa­cil­ity.

The coun­cil de­cided in May to tar­get up to 170,000 house­holds in the four mem­ber coun­cils that sent waste to the Neer­abup fa­cil­ity: the cities of Wan­neroo, Joon­dalup and Vin­cent and Town of Vic­to­ria Park.

The fly­ers tell res­i­dents to put all glass bot­tles and jars, in­clud­ing bro­ken ones, and ce­ram­ics into the re­cy­cling bins.

It says glass should not be put out for bulk verge col­lec­tions and all glass can be taken to the Ta­mala Park waste fa­cil­ity on Marmion Av­enue or the Bal­catta re­cy­cling and trans­fer sta­tion on Bal­catta Road.

Peo­ple should take light bulbs to house­hold haz­ardous waste col­lec­tion sites, TVs and com­puter screens to e-waste re­cy­clers, and bro­ken win­dows or glass doors to the land­fill trans­fer sta­tion.
