Lessons learned l.jpg
Lessons Learned

  • Layout not perfect

  • Separation of kerbside recycleables not efficient, the process transferred for material dropped off

  • Concentrate efforts on industrial and commercial products – bigger bang for the effort

  • Recycling is not commercially viable if considered alone, ie exclusive of cost to landfill
