More than one tonne of cardboard and 11 cubic metres of polystyrene were diverted from landfill as part of a Recycling Drop Off event hosted by Camden Council at the weekend.
The recycling event gave residents the chance to drop off their unwanted recycling items including bulky cardboard, paper, plastic bottles and containers, glass bottles, cans and polystyrene.
Mayor of Camden, Therese Fedeli said it was great to see hundreds of residents taking up the offer to recycle their items.
“Council is committed to providing residents with opportunities to divert their waste from landfill and our Recycling Drop Off continues to be a fantastic success,” the Mayor said.
“Camden continues to welcome up to 100 people into the area on a weekly basis and this event is equally beneficial for those moving homes with a range of recycling waste.
“It is also important to remind residents that they can take advantage of Council’s partnership with RecycleSmart, helping the community divert hard to recycle items from landfill by having the items collected straight from your front door.”
