lessons learned
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
