Trial at Tuggeranong to lower contamination rates

Modifications to the Tuggeranong Recycling Drop off Centre are being trialled during the holiday period to help reduce contamination found in the recycling stream.

The design of the paper and cardboard cage has changed from a large sliding gate to a smaller slot, aimed at ensuring boxes are emptied and flattened before placing them in the cage.

New signage has been erected that explains the changes, and during peak periods staff will be onsite to provide assistance and advice on recycling.

The Tuggeranong RDOC trial will run until 27 January 2020. Following the trial, ACT NoWaste will determine if similar modifications should be used at other recycling facilities in the ACT.
