Making the big difference.

Halve Waste and the 3 bin system have been working really well in our communities.

Our goal is to Halve our total waste by 2020 and we’re well on track for that.

We’re wrapped to be sharing our handy tips, but it’s you guys, the community getting behind it that is making the big difference.

In every household, business, school, backyard or front yard, you’re taking the time to reduce, re-use and recycle which means you’re
taking time to look after what’s important, our environment, our communities and our future.

So let’s keep it up, keep doing good together and halve our waste by 2020.
