Despite a relatively dry year, residents marginally
increased the kerbside collection of garden
organics. At 30 June 2013, 41.56 per cent
of the region’s households participated in the
garden organics service (up 3.2 per cent on the
previous year). Collectively, they placed 16,588
tonnes of organics for kerbside collection, an
increase of 638 tonnes.
In addition, 6,819 tonnes of organics –
comprising street sweepings, stormwater silt and
bulk garden organics collected at the Salisbury
Waste Transfer Station and NAWMA’s Resource
Recovery Centre – was delivered to Jeffries for
processing.

follows:
Salisbury up 1.3 per cent to 56.6 per cent;
