SV launches new recycling campaign

Sustainability Victoria have launched a new campaign to reduce contamination in the kerbside recycling bins.

The ‘Know your recycling’ campaign is being promoted through television, radio, YouTube, social media and podcasts, as well through councils.

The campaign focuses on the most common contaminates identified from previous research including:

  • Recycling in plastic bags
  • Soft plastics
  • Food scraps
  • Clothing
  • Polystyrene

The Know your recycling website includes a handy search tool to look up if an item can go into the recycling bin. It also has information about what happens to recycling and tips for recycling better at home.
