The introduction of 1. fortnightly collection of all three waste streams and the Food Organics and 2. Green Organics (FOGO) bins to townships and coastal settlements in no burn zones had a major impact on the diversion of kerbside general waste away from landfill.
Comparing 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 kerbside collection tonnages:
- Kerbside Municipal Waste (MSW) disposal, falling by 32%
- Recycling materials collected at the kerbside increasing by 66%
- FOGO collected at the kerbside of 331 tonnes in 2017/2018 with the trend YTD at December 2020 of this tonnage increasing by 28%
The estimated saving to the District Council of Yankalilla in landfill costs in a four year period are just over $56,000 (based on projected landfill tonnages prior to the commencement of fortnightly collection).
All kerbside bin collections scheduled for Mondays in 2020 will occur, even on public holidays.
