200 good reasons to reduce contamination in your bin

The City of Cockburn’s bin auditing program is back in 2021 and this time there is an extra incentive for residents to reduce their contamination.

Entering its fifth year, the waste education program aims to reduce the amount of contamination in recycling and green waste bins and thereby prevent them from being sent to landfill. Bin auditors inspect the City's kerbside bins and provide feedback to households that improves waste sorting to avoid contamination.

In 2020, all 10 zones audited had reduced contamination levels. On average, contamination was reduced from 50 per cent to 35 per cent.

This year, residents will have the opportunity to win one of five $200 vouchers to spend at a selection of local businesses. Plus the City will draw great weekly prizes up to the value of $50. 

All residents need to do to enter the competition is present all three of their waste bins with no contamination. Each time this happens residents will receive an entry into the competition - allowing for multiple chances to win. The five winners of the $200 vouchers will be drawn on 16 July 2021.

The program will run from Tuesday 9 March to Tuesday 13 July. There will be bin audits every fortnight in the suburbs of Beeliar, Hamilton Hill, Coogee, Aubin Grove, Yangebup, Coolbellup, Munster, and Success.
