  1. We recently looked into getting more recycling bins for our property and to our shock we discovered that all the recycling in the Byron Shire goes to landfill and there is no recycling depot close enough to make it cost effective.

    We now keep all our cardboard and newspapers for the garden and also all the glass bottles and jars to make a future bottle wall in the garden…much better than going to the dump.

    Perhaps others can confirm or deny this as I’m sure shire residents would be appalled to find out that efforts to recycle are being wasted.

  2. That was embarrassing. Mandy you need to step up. Go seek out Nina Bishop and let her show you how it’s done.
