Northern Tasmanians are pretty good at recycling, with an approximate 10% rate of contamination in our kerbside recycling.
However, as the national target is just 5%, we still have a long way to go.
This week is National Recycling Week, an opportunity for us to think about what we do with our waste and where it ends up.
Listen as Michael Attard, co-ordinator of the Northern Tasmanian Waste Management Group, joins Martin Agatyn to discuss recycling here in our state.
