Probe into recycling
Following the refusal from China to no longer process Australian rubbish an Environment, Resourced and Development committee will investigate to extent of the situation. The committee will investigate if more money should be made available to councils from the Green Industries Fund. This fund now contains$120 mill. This money was raised from Councils sending rubbish to landfill (the blue bin). Contamination in the yellow bin remains a serious issue as people thoughtlessly put recyclable materials into it. Hopefully, the release of funds will open up better opportunities for Council?
