Thousands help keep waste out of landfill

OVER 6,000 residents have helped stop an incredible 192 tonnes of waste from going to landfill in the 2022/2023 financial year via Resource Recovery Australia (RRA).

The waste was diverted through RRA’s Mobile Community Recycling Service (MCRS), a one-of-a-kind Community Recycling Centre (CRC) on wheels.
Through the service, customers can safely dispose of common household problem waste including old paint, household and car batteries, gas and helium balloon bottles, e-waste, fire extinguishers, engine and cooking oils, fluorescent globes, tubes and smoke detectors – all of which do not belong in the bin.
These items can all be picked up from home for free, reducing the risk of fires and environmental harm.
RRA is a national social enterprise that works in waste management to keep waste out of landfill, create jobs for people experiencing barriers to work and to engage and connect people in the local communities.
MCRS Team Leader Anthena Huhn said: ”Improper disposal of problem waste poses serious risks, not only in households but also in household bins and garbage trucks where batteries, for example, can ignite fires.”
