Revolutionising Recycling in Rockhampton

In a groundbreaking move to boost recycling efforts, Rockhampton Regional Council has joined forces with Recycle Mate, an innovative web-based platform.

Launched during National Recycling Week, Recycle Mate promises to be the go-to guide for Rockhampton residents seeking accurate information on waste disposal.

The Australian Recycling Industry’s Vital Role in Sustainability

The Australian recycling industry plays a crucial role in collecting, processing, and reusing waste materials to reduce landfill waste and conserve natural resources, contributing significantly to the nation’s sustainability goals. 

Waste Wisdom at Your Fingertips

The Recycle Mate app is a mobile application designed to provide detailed recycling information and a map of nearby drop-off points. With features like material searches, recycling progress tracking, and reward incentives, it empowers users to actively participate in recycling efforts. 

Waste and Recycling Councillor Shane Latcham underscores the importance of this collaboration, stating, “Recycle Mate is a game-changer, providing free interactive resources to empower our community.”

The platform, initiated by the Australian recycling industry, is set to revolutionise waste management by offering detailed information with just a click.

Residents can now effortlessly navigate the council’s website, search for specific items, and discover the optimal disposal method Recycle Mate suggests.

The platform also boasts a user-friendly app, available for free on the Apple and Google Play stores, allowing residents to snap a photo of an item and receive disposal recommendations, promoting correct recycling practises.

Mapping a Sustainable Future

The Recycle Mate app doesn’t stop at information; it also features a convenient map, helping users locate nearby community recycling drop-off points. This addition aligns with Rockhampton’s commitment to fostering a zero-waste community and building a local circular economy.

Councillor Latcham encourages every community member to explore this resource, emphasising the impact of recycling rights on increasing resource recovery.

By leveraging Recycle Mate, Rockhampton aims to take a significant step towards sustainability, with the Queensland Government’s support making this collaboration possible.

Government Support: Queensland’s Key Role in Recycling Collaboration

The Queensland Government has been instrumental in fostering collaboration between the Rockhampton Regional Council and Recycle Mate.

Through funding and resources, the government has supported the app’s launch, promotion, and development of new recycling infrastructure in the region.

A Smarter Tomorrow

Rockhampton’s collaboration with Recycle Mate marks a significant leap forward in waste management.

With detailed recycling information and convenient features at their fingertips, residents can actively participate in creating a greener, more sustainable future.

The free Recycle Mate app and online platform are poised to redefine recycling practises in Rockhampton, offering a convenient solution to waste woes.
