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.
