The contents are collected by the City’s collection vehicles and deposited at the Atlas sorting plant. The material is loaded on to conveyor belts for feeding into revolving drums, which with the addition of some water gently separates all of the components previously mixed up and bagged by the householder. The sorting process takes less than one hour.
The benefits of single bin recycling
A recent independent study (March 2009) conducted by the Carbon Reduction Institute, NSW, has found Stirling's Single Bin
Recycling system had a total emissions impact of 324.16 tonnes of Co2e per year, compared with the 2 Bin Recycling system which has a total emissions impact of 486.24 tonnes of Co2e per year and this equates to a saving of 162.08 tonnes Co2e tonnes per year to the City.

Home units in groups of 13 or more have a bulk bin service, which provides an allowance of 120 litres of waste per unit per week.
