Glass recycle message grows
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.
