Recycling - Averda
Join this free initiative offered by Averda to improve our neighbourhood. Not only does recycling have a positive impact on the environment, it has been proven to reduce crime.
Here are more good reasons to be part of this initiative:
- free plastic bags are provided to store your recycling waste (to be used for recycling only not for garden refuse or ‘wet’ litter in City wheelie bins)
- it is crucial that we all recycle to reduce landfill and litter going into the ocean destroying marine life
- by law everyone should be recycling (although not yet enforced) – see notes below*
- you will be amazed at how little waste remains after recycling
What can be recycled: paper, glass, plastic (containers, cups, bags etc), cartons (tetra pack etc), tin, steel and aluminium cans, foam products (polystyrene), juice pouches and food packets. Bottles and containers should be RINSED. (No organic waste.) Averda will collect from your door once a week.
