Council has some better ways with waste: and recycling offers possibilities beyond landfill...
Since soft plastics don't go in recycling, you can now take those bread bags, biscuit packets, rice and pasta bags, newspaper wrap and plastic shopping bags to participating Coles and Woolworths, stores, check here http://redcycle.net.au/redcycle/locator
Or bring your soft plastics into Customer Service here at Council or to the Coal Loader in Waverton and place them in our REDcycle bins.
You can recycle batteries also at Council, Coal Loader, Stanton Library, and the Community Recycling Centre (CRC), we take
- AA, AAA, C, DD and 9v smoke alarm batteries

Can be recycled at the Coal Loader where there is a collection bin.
