Kerbside recycling bin assessments are conducted a couple of times a year in North West Tasmania.

Since the kerbside recycling bin assessments began in the Cradle Coast in 2014, there has been a 37% improvement in the number of pass grades achieved when checked for general waste, green waste or other non-recyclable materials.  Well done everyone!

Recycling bins containing more than 10% of non-recyclable materials, known as contamination, classify as a fail in the bin assessment program, which is coordinated across seven local councils as part of the Cradle Coast Waste Management Group’s waste minimisation work.
