Want to know what happens to your items in your kerbside recycling bin (yellow bin) in the City of Prospect?
City of Prospect’s recycling is collected by East Waste and delivered to the Northern Adelaide Waste Management Authority (NAWMA) for processing.

(Around 80% of all recovered recycling streams are recycled in South Australia and interstate. NAMWA has made a commitment to have 100% recycled within Australia by 2020. This will mean that none of City of Prospect’s recyclable resources will be sent overseas after 2020)
