The Moreton Bay council has reminded residents to avoid putting plastic bags in their recycling bin, which could be a great piece of advice for owners of Caboolture real estate.
Economic Development spokesperson and councillor for Division Ten Brian Battersby said one of the key things for people to remember was to avoid putting these bags in their recycling, with National Recycling Week offering the ideal platform to help locals reassess their household waste habits.
"Bagging up recyclables in plastic shopping bags creates safety concerns for the workers sorting the contents of Moreton Bay Region's 143,000 yellow top bins and often results in the bag and its contents ending up in landfill," said Mr Battersby in a 10 November statement.
"Regrettably, instead of reducing the amount of waste going into landfill, contaminated recycling adds to it. Recycle it, but don't bag it."
As the community begins to embrace a more sustainable approach to their day-to-day lives, these reminders are a great way to stay on top of the changes and help create a cleaner, greener Caboolture community.
