ONE YEAR AGO...
KERBSIDE recycling had rolled out across the Whitsundays to coincide with National Recycling Week from October 13, 2017.
Residents across the Whitsundays were able fill their recently delivered, yellow-lidded wheelie bins to prevent plastic, glass and paper from being buried in landfill.
A year on, a new initiative is about to be launched that will provide further incentive for residents to recycle.
The container refund scheme will kick off on Thursday enabling residents to get a 10 cent refund on eligible containers.
