Mary Gill talking about Recycling

Monday, 06 Aug 2018

Mary Gill from Launceston Recycling spoke to our members last Thursday evening.

She explained that contamination in the bins, such as food, nappies, lawn clippings and plastic bags hamper the recycling process and cause hazards for the sorting staff at the Materials Recovery Facility.

To help with letting households learn what can and cannot be recycled,  recycling auditors have been getting elbow deep in rubbish to help out.

The assessment process is as follows:

Each kerbside recycling bin is been checked three times and stickers for a pass, improvement required or fail sticker has been left on each bin after each inspection.

She said that people do have concerns that recycling actually goes to landfill, but she said that it doesn’t here in Tasmania. The recycling here does get sorted and is sold off.

There were plenty of questions about what is recyclable and what is not, so a lot of Rotarians went from the meeting better informed. Thank you Mary.
