From 5 August 2019, Wattle Range Council residents will start to receive their new kerbside collection calendars, but this year there is a twist. The new calendars cover the next three years, with tear off pages so that the current year will always be on top.
“We are working towards a more sustainable future and this initiative will reduce printing by a third” said Mayor Des Noll.
“This is a much better approach for the environment and is also a cost saving for Council”.
The new calendars also provide information about which items should be placed in each bin.
“People may have seen the recent tv and newspaper ads featuring Vin and the Which Bin campaign. We are following up on that increased awareness by providing a handy reference guide that can stay on the fridge for the next few years.”
The new calendars are one of a number of waste initiatives planned by the Council over the coming year. Other projects will include a recycling wall at a local school, a refresh of the kitchen caddy program and targeted campaigns to increase community awareness about common mistakes in recycling.
Calendars will be delivered by Australia Post in the coming weeks and residents are asked to wait until 23 August before requesting additional copies from Council offices.
