The Bin Tagging Program focuses on reducing contamination and increasing resource recovery from the kerbside system. Unfortunately, general information provision alone does not necessarily change community behaviour in relation to the kerbside collection system.
The bin audit and education program is modelled on a South Australian program and has also been successfully carried out in a number of WA councils. The process of bin auditing is about educating households through direct feedback, without intending to invade the privacy of those properties.
