|Here in the greater Albury region we are facing some serious waste management challenges.
Domestic recycling rates are well below state averages. Recycling rates for Commercial & Industrial and Construction & Demolition wastes are also falling well short of state waste recovery targets. In addition, the region’s landfill, Albury Waste Management Centre, is filling too fast: at current levels of disposal it will be full in less than 20 years.
‘Halve Waste – reduce, reuse, recycle’ is a public awareness and education campaign developed to engage the whole community in efforts to reduce waste and increase recycling in the greater Albury region.
