No Glass campaign launched
On Sunday 25th October the much anticipated ‘No Glass’ campaign was ‘soft’ launched at a series of events in the MRC region. The popular community events of Little Feet (City of Joondalup), Angove Street Festival (City of Vincent), Living and Leisure Expo (City of Wanneroo) and the Moreton Bay Fig Festival (Town of Victoria Park) will be the first to deliver the campaign message to the public.
The ‘No Glass’ campaign aims to reduce glass contamination in the general waste bin to improve recycling outcomes, in particular reducing glass making its way to the Resource Recovery Facility (RRF) and into the compost that is produced there. This is to be primarily achieved by encouraging residents to utilize their recycling bins rather than the general waste bins to dispose of glass items through the application of a ‘NO GLASS in THIS Bin’ sticker and associated information.
