Learn something new this National Recycling Week

Learn something new this National Recycling Week

Earlier this year, Sustainability Victoria ranked the Strathbogie Shire municipality as number two in the state for diversion of kerbside waste out of 79 local government areas. “The Sustainability Victoria ranking didn’t even look at home composting, using the transfer stations or collecting soft plastic for REDcycle which we know lots of you do.” “We congratulate our community on their ongoing commitment to the three bin system which we are proud to say is working really effectively, and we think we can do even better!” This year Planet Ark asked councils around Australia to tell us what the most common recycling myths held by residents were.  They found the most common myths were that all recycling goes to landfill, a Plastic Identification Code means it's recyclable and soft plastics can be recycled in the kerbside recycling bin. We will be at Burtons IGA in Euroa from 9-11am and Nagambie Visitor Information Centre from 1-3pm on Thursday 14th November and we would love to see you and bust some myths!
