Over 50% of kerbside household waste collected from the Shire of Collie residents is now being diverted from landfill. This exceeds the Waste Authority’s 2020 target set for regional
centres.

Since the introduction of the third organics bin in April 2016, Collie Shire residents have successfully increased waste recovery to over 50%, with the rate at 53% for the last quarter
ending December 2016.

Collie Shire residents are to be congratulated on achieving some of the state’s highest diversion rates with some of the lowest contamination rates. At the last audit, the organics bin
contamination rate was just 2.4% and recycling was sitting at 9.4%.
