Small steps towards Saving our Recycling

News | Dec 17, 2018

The local government sector has welcomed a funding announcement that will see $115,000 invested to help divert disposable coffee cups from landfill, and urged the NSW Government to go further.

Local Government and Environment Minister Gabrielle Upton announced the funding – to coffee cup recycler Closed Loop Environmental Solutions Pty Ltd – to help divert approximately 11 million cups from landfill within a year.

Local Government NSW President Linda Scott said the announcement was great news, and an example of what can be achieved by focusing on recycling in NSW.
