Hi Fiona, we have had recycling bins in the past around the CBD but unfortunately they were contaminated with rubbish regularly which meant we couldn’t continue with them. We’re hoping these new bins will be used correctly so we can make them permanent.

Hi Louise, to begin with, we would like to be sure we can collect clean recycling. In the future we may consider trialling a public organic waste collection, however, if the food scraps are contaminated, it can’t be made into compost and would need to be landfilled. ^Krystle

Hi Kristen, thanks for the suggestion. We are still working out the logistics so locations aren't confirmed yet, but there will be 8 other bins rolled out in the next few months. ^Krystle
