Trial background 

Council is committed to reducing household waste from landfill.

The City of Burnside is now diverting around 60 per cent of household waste from landfill and, to improve on this performance, will continue to seek opportunities to increase diversion rates.

Council is trialling recycling at Glenunga Hub and Hazelwood Park for 12 months commencing March 2018.

As part of the trial, Smart Sensor Technology has been employed to monitor the waste disposed of and to collect data that can help to analyse the results.

The trial will help us determine if recycling can be employed to all open space areas across Council so that we can reduce the volume of waste entering landfill; helping our environment.

The new bins will be emptied by our waste partner East Waste.

What can I do?

You can help by placing the correct items into the right bin.

Placing waste into a recycle bin contaminates the ability to recycle all of the items in the bin - resulting in the contaminated recycle bin being disposed of in landfill.

Check the signs on the bins to see what can go into each bin.

Remember:

- Red for Waste

- Yellow for Recycle.

We thank you for your cooperation in this trial and helping us to protect the environment.
