Timaru District Council

Every fortnight, people all over Timaru District put their yellow bins out to the curbside to have their recycling whisked away. But have you ever wondered what happens next, and what we can do to be more sustainable in our recycling.

This time we talk to Ruth and Briony from our waste minimisation unit about everything recycling, from what we can deal with out plastics in a more local and sustainable way, the problem with 'wishcycling', and why you really, really shouldn't put nappies in the yellow bin!
