“Take your trash – keep our rivers clean” is a litter reduction project delivered by RAMJO Murray Waste Group participating Councils funded by the NSW EPA. The project aims to reduce the incidence of littering and prevent litter blowing into the Murray River and waterways by installing compactor bins, litter deterrent signage, education, media and enforcement.
The compactor bins are an innovative solution to prevent litter blowing out of bins. These bins also improve waste management efficiency by compacting bin waste and sending electronic alerts when they need emptying.
The bins have been labelled with “Don’t be a tosser” signage in five local government areas – Wentworth Shire Council, Balranald Shire Council, Murray River Council, Federation Council and Albury City.
