In Australia, about 6 billion plastic bags are used annually, with most of them ending up in a landfill. What most people don’t know is that not all are recyclable. Despite most Australians being actively responsible in their recycling efforts, many of us don’t actually know the effect that recycling plastic bags has on our waste.
The stats are in and it’s an appalling reality Australia has to face in which we create 50 million tonnes of waste every year. This waste is going directly into our landfills, which can reach our waterways and affect our lives in many ways.
Imagine being rewarded for recycling! Now it’s a reality, thanks to Melbourne’s waste management program that incentivises Melbournians to go green.
The City of Melbourne has begun a campaign for local residents to start helping to clean up the litter with increased recycling efforts. This is a first-ever in Victoria in which the program, called GreenMoney, will be launched to see how well residents in Melbourne react to a reward-driven recycling program.
The Festive Season certainly has many perks. Time away from work, time spent with family, and just good jolliness all round. But what happens after our extravagant Christmas and New Year’s celebrations and we’re left with all that rubbish.
Because we are situated in Boronia, in Victoria’s South Eastern suburbs, pricing for
our services is dependent on the distance we will need to travel to drop off and collect the rubbish skips.
