Celebrating ‘Great Sorts’ during National Recycling Week!

Published on Friday, 4 November 2022 at 9:00:00 AM

The Shire of Dardanup will be looking for the ‘Great Sorts’ in our community during this year’s National Recycling Week so we can thank them for sorting their rubbish correctly and helping us divert more waste from landfill.

We’ve teamed up with our Waste Contractor Veolia (formerly Suez) for the recycling week campaign which will see ‘Thank you’ packs placed in letterboxes of homes identified by truck cameras as having low levels of contamination in their Yellow-Lidded Recycling and Green-Lidded FOGO bins.

Plus, all of our ‘Great Sorts’ will go into a monthly ongoing prize draw for the chance to win a $100 Woolworths voucher.

Ensuring we keep contamination levels low reduces the cost of disposal and ensures maximum amounts of rubbish are diverted from landfill.

Dardanup Shire President Mick Bennett said educating the community on sorting waste correctly at home was an important and ongoing process.

“We hope by shining a light on those who are doing well with sorting their waste we’ll encourage others to follow their lead,” Cr Bennett said.

“People are so overloaded with information these days so this is just our way of being a bit creative in how we get our messages out there.”

‘Great Sorts’ will also go into an ongoing monthly draw for the chance to win a $100 Woolworths voucher.

National Recycling Week is an annual campaign by Planet Ark and has been running since 1996.

It aims to provide focus on the ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ message to minimise strain on finite resources.

The campaign works to close the recycling loop by encouraging people to buy products made with recycled content for a sustainable future.
