Waste—public waste bins(Question No 1843)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 21 September 2011:

What is the breakdown of the different wastestream types, including recyclables, that are currently collected from public waste bins in (a) the ACT and (b) the Civic precinct (i) by tonnage and (ii) by proportion of the total.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

In 2010-11 the Territory and Municipal Services (TAMS) Directorate collected a total of approximately 820 tonnes of waste from public bins in the ACT. TAMS estimates that 120 tonnes (15%) of waste was collected from the Civic precinct.

The only location in public areas from which recyclable material is currently being collected and recycled is Glebe Park. (Recycling bins were installed in Glebe Park following a trial undertaken in 2007 and have been retained at this location.) TAMS estimates that 2 tonnes or 0.25% of recyclable material is collected per year from these bins.
