TAMWORTH REGIONAL COUNCIL LAUNCHES VOUCHER SYSTEM TO IMPROVE RECYCLING

A new voucher system is being launched in the Tamworth region from next week to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.

Anyone with Council-supplied bins can expect to receive bulky goods vouchers in the mail.

It’s part of a trial which could see the two-a-year bulk collection days replaced.

“Instead of that waste, if you put that in the bulky goods collection it goes into landfill. If you take it to the landfill, then we will recycle it – if possible,” Bruce Logan, Director of Water and Waste, Tamworth Regional Council.

The vouchers allow two free trailer loads of waste per year.
