A recent recycling audit has highlighted key areas for improvement when it comes to recycling in the Scenic Rim Region. The audit confirmed a 40% increase in recycling activity since the introduction of the dual bin program in the region in mid-2009 and showed residents are correctly recycling 46% of glass, 29% of paper and cardboard, nearly 8% of plastic and 5% of metal. The audit found that 88% of the contents put into recycle bins by Scenic Rim residents is able to be recycled. The audit also indicated the need for residents to increase their composting efforts, with nearly 50% of waste bin materials containing organic matter able to be composted or mulched. Recyclables should always be placed loose in the recycle bin and not bagged.
