Continue Recycling in Ipswich Queensland Australia

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

On the 18th of April 2018 the Ipswich City Council announced that all recyclable rubbish collected by the Ipswich City Council will now be sent to landfill, with the local government body saying it’s too expensive to continue. It was confirmed by contractors that an extra $2 million will have to be paid per annum for recycling services. The Council claims the recycling services are too expensive.

After 30 years of education around recycling and sustainable practices in Australia, and encouraging sustainable recycling practices, Ipswich City Council are abandoning the residents of Ipswich and sending their rubbish to landfill.

The staff and students of Redbank Plains State High School would like to see recycling practices continue in the City of Ipswich and ensure that the Ipswich City Council budgets for the implementation of recycling for years to come for the people of Ipswich.
