Recycling requires only a small amount of our time. It saves money, reduces waste and energy, and creates more jobs than waste disposal in landfill.
In Brisbane we have been recycling for 15 years, and yet 30% of what goes to landfill is actually recyclable. But each year we're improving, with 2010-11 resulting in over 91,436 tonnes of recyclables collected and recycled.
By choosing to recycle you can help make Brisbane a more sustainable city by conserving non-renewable resources and reducing our reliance on landfill.
