Westerns Downs Regional Council are working towards improving resource recovery through increasing recycling opportunities at waste disposal facilities in the region for both domestic and commercial customers. This in turn is helping to divert waste from landfill.
Encouraging people to utilise the recycling facilities available at these sites lessens the environmental impact of waste disposal by reducing the volumes of waste going to landfill. With limited available space and restrictions on new landfill establishment, the provision of recycling facilities offers an effective and more sustainable alternative to managing the region’s waste.
Feedback to Council suggests that the majority of users approve of the new recycling opportunities available at the waste disposal facilities and demand is for further expansion of these recycling facilities.
Sort it. Load it. Recycle it! By sorting and segregating your load, you will not only save yourself time and effort, but will also be making a positive contribution to the economic and environmental future of Western Downs.
