City of Yarra improves business precinct recycling

 The City of Yarra has just wrapped up a Metropolitan Local Government Waste and Resource Recovery Fund project to improve recycling practices across six business and shopping precincts.

The project was a great success with recycling improved with businesses sharing waste services, and many of those previously using only general waste bins introducing recycling bins. The precincts became cleaner and more inviting, with incidences of litter, dumped rubbish and cardboard packaging piles decreasing. Overall, 1107 tonnes of waste were diverted from landfill across the six precincts. A great result!
