Recycling in Camden has taken a major step forward with 1.2 tonnes of cardboard and 24 cubic metres of polystyrene diverted from landfill after Council’s Recycling Drop Off event last weekend.
The quarterly event returned this month after a brief hiatus due to this year’s lockdown, with residents recycling unwanted items, including:
- Bulky cardboard;
- Plastic bottles and containers;
- Glass bottles;
- Cans; and
- Polystyrene, which is not collected in yellow-lidded bin, was also available to be dropped off for recycling.
“Council’s Recycling Drop Off is a great way to not only help the environment by diverting waste from landfill, but also giving many residents moving into the Camden area a chance to clear their recycling waste,” a Council spokesperson said.
“Diverting 1.2 tonnes of cardboard and 24 cubic metres of polystyrene kilograms of waste over the weekend was a fantastic result for the Camden community.”
Residents will soon be able to recycle their Christmas wrapping and much more with the next Recycling Drop Off to be held in early January 2022.
