Regional NSW has a recycling service for kerbside bins, however the facilities for each town and the service they provide vary. The quality of waste Kurrajong Recycling receive could be improved if the community were aware of the problems associated with quality control in the recycling centre.
Thirty children attended a school workshop to hear the discussion and ask questions about recycling. The student ‘Waste Warriors’ team demonstrated their waste recycling practices. Suggestions on improvements were made by Elizabeth Madden, Education Officer with Kurrajong Recycling. A visit to the school garden showed how organic waste is used as feed for poultry and worms.
Seventeen members of Narrandera Landcare attended an evening meeting. Also attending were two members of the Narrandera Council who provided an update on the latest rate-payers survey results on the need for organic waste recycling bins. Participants indicated a greater understanding on the need for careful recycling.
