The new garbage/recyclables col­lec­tion ini­tia­tive came into effect two short months ago (August 1st). The pur­pose of the ini­tia­tive was to reduce waste vol­umes to our Waste Dis­posal Site and to encour­age bet­ter man­age­ment of our house­hold waste start­ing right in the home. Although the change was met with mixed reviews as most changes are, we as a com­mu­nity have come together once again and made this change another suc­cess story.

As a direct result of the ini­tia­tive and the efforts put for­ward by the peo­ple of our com­mu­nity we have deliv­ered 17.6 tonnes of recy­clable waste to the depot in Bran­don within the third quar­ter of this year. In com­par­i­son to last year where we deliv­ered 5.35 tonnes in the same short period of time. In two short months we have reduced the vol­ume of waste to our land­fill site by approx­i­mately 12 tonnes.

As reported ear­lier, we deliv­ered 22 tonnes of recy­clable waste in all of 2013. With the con­tin­ued coop­er­a­tion and par­tic­i­pa­tion of our entire com­mu­nity we will well sur­pass pre­vi­ous reports and reach our tar­get deliv­er­ies while extend­ing the life of our waste dis­posal site for future generations.

Con­grat­u­la­tions peo­ple!!! Our com­mu­nity has once again embraced change and turned another ini­tia­tive into a suc­cess story.
