At Jeffries, we think it’s great to be part of a State that shows such passion and dedication for recycling. It’s no secret that South Australia leads the nation with its recycling efforts, with around 70% of our waste diverted from landfill and being recycled.
To help boost the State’s efforts, Zero Waste SA recently launched the ‘Recycle Right’ campaign, encouraging households to ensure that they are placing the right material in the right bins.
A key feature of the campaign included a package of information letterbox dropped to 95,000 households across metro-Adelaide, used as a trial to provide tips and tools to help households become even better at recycling. The campaign also includes a new search engine feature on the Zero Waste SA website allowing users to find out what materials can be recycled and which bin they should be placed into based on their Council area.
“Explaining to householders why it’s important to put items for recycling in the correct bin is an important part of the recycling process,” says Marcia Hewitt, Communications Manager Zero Waste SA. “Research shows that the community is keen to recycle correctly, but has some uncertainty about what can and can’t go in the recycling bin. Recycle Right aims to inform residents so they can make better recycling decisions, as well as stop recyclable materials going to landfill and reduce our carbon footprint.”
For Jeffries, sending out this important message and having households do their best to Recycle Right is vital to creating quality compost, soil and mulch products for our end users.
We think that what our State has been able to achieve in its recycling efforts is fantastic – and we know that with your help, we can do even more.
