CBCity saves 19-tonne from landfill

CBCity saves 19-tonne from landfill The local community has recycled more than 41,000 printer cartridges in just 12 months, saving almost 19-tonne from landfill. No  

The local community has recycled more than 41,000 printer cartridges in just 12 months, saving almost 19-tonne from landfill.

The city-wide recycling effort forms part of the City of Canterbury Bankstown’s involvement with Cartridges 4 Planet Ark, a free and accredited recycling program.

Planet Ark Senior Campaign Coordinator, Claire Bell, said Canterbury-Bankstown’s contribution significant.

"The number of cartridges recycled by this City is enough to fill three-and-a-half backyard pools, or 1,174 bathtubs!" Ms Bell said.

"The cartridges will be broken down into their component materials and used to make garden beds, pens, road surfaces, recycled ink and into new cartridges.

"It is now more important than ever to keep recyclable resources in circulation and not allow them to go to landfill. It’s fantastic to see councils like the City of Canterbury Bankstown positively reinforcing the recycling message with education and ease of opportunity."

Mayor Khal Asfour encouraged residents to continue recycling their waste correctly, particularly with Council’s upcoming free e-waste collections, which will be held at Bankstown Paceway on Saturday 8 and 15 September, from 9am-3.30pm.

"Last year, we collected more than seven tonne of electronic waste, that’s the combined weight of two elephants and we’re looking for another big effort this year," Mayor Asfour said.

"Our community has told us it wants Canterbury-Bankstown to be cleaner and greener by 2028, and providing this service is one way of achieving that."

At the e-waste collections, residents can drop off:

  • Computers and laptops, including monitors, keyboards, hard drives and other accessories;
  • Televisions, DVD players, stereos and other entertainment appliances;
  • Mobile phones and tablets, including batteries and chargers; and
  • Small appliances, including toasters, kettles, hair dryers and clock radios.

Council runs and supports a number of other recycling initiatives, including:

  • The Recycle Right program, which helps residents use their yellow bin correctly;
  • Composting and worm farm workshops, showing how to reduce household waste by half;
  • Wheelie Good compost, made from material collected from residents’ green bins and given back to them free of charge; and
  • Aligning waste services, to ensure an efficient and consistent city-wide service.
