6 November 2006 Maroochy celebrates National Recycling Week
As part of National Recycling Week, Maroochy Council would like to remind residents that recycling can and should be a part of everyday life whether at home, work or at school.
Environment Portfolio Chair Councillor Paul Tatton said every single person can make a difference when it comes to recycling.
"When you recycle an aluminium drink can, milk bottle or a single newspaper, you may not think you're doing much for the environment but you are definitely making a difference," Cr Dunne said. "Especially when millions of other individuals around the world are doing the same thing."
As part of the National Recycling Week celebrations, Maroochy Council is hosting a 'Community Open Day' at the Nambour Material Recovery Facility (MRF).
Cr Tatton said the Maroochy's MRF is one of the most advanced and innovative in Queensland.
"The MRF has recovered more than 9900 tonnes of recyclables from Maroochy residents in the last financial year alone," he said.
"The MRF is a regional facility that also processes recyclables from Caloundra, Noosa, Cooloola and Kilcoy as well, and in total it has recovered more than 20,000 tonnes of recyclables in the 2005/06 financial year."
Maroochy residents are encouraged to participate in a tour of the MRF facility and enjoy a sausage sizzle and discover what really happens to your recyclables once they leave your home.
