Recycling in Jamestown: What's the Problem?

Jacqui Symonds

Abstract


Jamestown, in the Mid-North of the state, has recently changed its methods of waste disposal. The Jamestown Dump, located nearby, has come under new ownership and has become the Jamestown Recycling Centre. To take their recyclables there, the community must pay a fee. Due to this fee, people are reluctant to recycle. This report will look into the various methods of waste disposal in the town and how fees affect people’s recycling habits.
