Council operates a number of recycling programs which cater for small and large quantities of recyclable materials.
Council provides 240L MGB’s at each of the Waste Management Facilities for co-mingled recycling which are collected by JR Richards & Sons.
Council runs a cardboard and paper recycling program in conjunction with AMCOR. Council operates a cardboard press at the Narromine Waste Management Facility which is used to bale waste paper and cardboard. The bales are then transported to the AMCOR recycling plant in Sydney. Narromine businesses and residents can take their waste paper and cardboard to the Narromine Waste Management Facility. Trangie and Tomingley Waste Management Facilities are provided with a trailer which when full are transported to the Narromine Waste Management Facility for processing.
Since the beginning of the kerbside Recycling Collection Service (July 2010), residents of Narromine Shire Council have recycled nearly 1,551 tonnes of material. This has saved 25,687 litres of water, or enough to fill more than 10 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
Congratulations, that's a great effort!
Remember, please do not place plastic bags in your recycling bin at home or in the recycling bins at the Waste Depot.
