Kenmore Rotary has successfully partnered with a number of businesses and not-for-profit organisations to collect recyclable drink containers. Funds raised will be reinvested in the Community
This program was launched on November 11, 2018 and has been amazingly successful in the short time it has been going -thank you to the partners and community for your support and success.
CONTAINER RECYCLING PROGRAM -OUR PARTNERS
Kenmore Rotary, together with community partners are taking a lead role locally with the State Government new Container Recycling initiative.
WHAT CAN AND CAN'T BE RECYCLED
Most glass, plastic, aluminium, steel and paper based cartons between 150ml and 3L
As shown in the graph, our community has donated over 52,000 containers from Oct 20 to May 21 through Rotary Kenmore and Partners. Since starting this project in November 2018 Kenmore Rotary and Partners saved in excess of 200,000 containers from landfill.
Please do not recycle wine bottle, juice bottles, spirit bottles or milk containers - everything else is welcome.
