Bottlenecked: Recycling bottles into local roads

    Woollamia Road, Huskisson NSW 2540, Australia

Fiona Schreures, Resource Recovery Projects Coordinator from Shoalhaven City Council had a dilemma. What do you do with a 10,000 tonne mountain of stockpiled, dirty contaminated glass waste (fines) that no none wants to recycle and you don't want to landfill? Wash it of course!

Shoalhaven City Council developed a solution to clean and recycle the "un-recyclable" fine glass left over from the sorting/separating of material from the kerbside recycling bin, and it's coming to a road near you.
