National Recycling Week

Recycling Dont Bag Your Recyclables

The Burdekin Shire Council runs a number of activities to celebrate National Recycling Week.

One of our key messages for National Recycling Week is to reduce waste to landfill and not to bag recyclable items as these issues have been identified as areas requiring improvement.

Everyone can recycle and make a difference!
