Bills always seem to come in just before Christmas don't they? For any bills you receive in the post (rather than email) you can put the envelopes in your yellow lid recycling bin - with the plastic windows still in them!
Don't forget, once you have paid the bill you can put the shredded paper in your organics bin. ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you so confirming, I always have but wasn't sure I should.
On another note when you have packaging from Christmas eg toys. Do you need to remove the plastic from the cardboard?
And do you need to remove the sticky tape from the wrapping paper?
I am really loving these educational tips. Please keep them up
I remove the plastic slot on a tissue box before putting it in the yellow bin. Is that the right thing to do?
Oh and I put the plastic bit in redcycle.
It is estimated that in SA alone, over 150,000 tonnes of food waste is put into general waste bins each year. Remember, food waste and organic materials need to be disposed of in your Organics bin (if this is allowed in your council area).
Would be great if councils offered compost bins to people that are willing to use them 😊
Love it! "Needs to"! 💚🥑♻️🌱 #NoFoodToLandfill #FeedFOGO
Live in an apartment. Won't work
Would be great if it's emptied more than once a month. The smell after a month of food waste (even in comfortable bags) is horrendous and our bin was full of maggots. Tried to do out bit but it's beyond disgusting!!
This morning we were joined by 150 of our colleagues in the waste and recycling industry at the annual KESAB Breakfast with the Minister.
The theme was 'The new circular economy' and ' single use plastics; compostable or biodegradable?'
David Speirs MP, Adam Faulkner (NAWMA), Scott Morton (BioBag World Australia), Tom Lunn (Detpak) and Peter Wadewitz (Peats Soil & Garden Supplies) gave us an insight into the hurdles that MRF operators and composters encounter on a daily basis, the opportunities in packaging and products and the role that the state government has to play in waste and recycling.
It's so awesome that South Australia is leading the way!
I have just return from NZ and the shops have a no plastic bags policy. Paper bags were all the go! I hate that our supermarkets still sell/offer plastic and dress shops etc.
they also have separate bins in so many public spaces. These were everywhere at the Ta Papa Museum.
Yay! Go South Australia!
I was advised that at present, all our recyclable materials are being stored in Warehouses. Why is that?
