Bin Inspection Program Results get a Tick for Lithgow

Overall, more than half of all inspected recycling bins contained no contamination! A big congratulation as 84% of inspected recycling bins contained none or only minor contaminants. Portland recorded the lowest overall proportion of low or no contamination (81%) within the recycling bins inspected.
Overall the most commonly observed recycling contaminant was ‘Plastic packets/film’, which made up 52% of contaminants observed. Another significant contaminant was ‘Recycling in plastic bags’, followed by ‘Tissues/serviettes’.
