Bunbury boosts its environmental credentials

By Kevin Kelly

Anyone living in real estate in Bunbury can share in their city's celebrations, as the local council has won yet another award for its environmental efforts.

The City of Bunbury has been given the Tidy Towns Waste Management and Litter Prevention award, adding to its already impressive haul over recent weeks.

Bunbury also received the Sustainable Cities Award at the Keep Australia Beautiful Council Western Australia Star Awards, as well as the Infinity Award at the Waste Authority's Infinity Awards.

City of Bunbury mayor Gary Brennan said organic bins have been an especially effective way of making sure the area stays at the top of the environmental stakes.

"It is a great initiative which has resulted in residents recycling 57 per cent of all waste, which sees only 43 per cent going to landfill," noted Mr Brennan.

He encouraged all members of the Bunbury area to come together in doing what they can to improve how waste is dealt with.

Each of the accolades has celebrated the city's effective waste management system, which has shown how getting communities involved can reduce an area's carbon footprint.

The Tidy Towns judging panel was impressed by the organics processing facility that has been set up in the city, as well as the presence of waste education officers.
