Is recycling contamination or illegal dumping a problem in your unit or apartment complex?
As part of Ashfield Council's commitment to tackling waste issues Council has produced two new signs for unit and apartment bin bays and notice boards regarding illegal dumping, Council's clean up services, and recycling. The signs are highly visual and contain community language translations.
These signs are available to Ashfield residents free of charge.
Please call Council's Customer Service Centre on 9716 1800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to obtain signage.
Contamination occurs when items that do not belong in a particular bin are placed in that bin. Ashfield Council and it's waste contractor, Transpacific Cleanaway, take contamination of Recycling and Garden Organics bins seriously. Contamination can result in machinery problems at processing facilities, as well as degrading the final recycled product. Please click here for an overview of Ashfield Council's Contamination Policy.
