National Recycling Week is 7-13 November and to celebrate, Frankston Council will start releasing a collection of short, quirky video clips called Talking Rubbish, featuring your friendly Recycling and Garbage bins (aka Reece and GB).
The key messages of the six part Talking Rubbish series focus on what can and can’t go in your kerbside recycling bin.
You can catch Talking Rubbish on a range of media, including Council’s Facebook page, website and Frankston TV YouTube channel. Feel free to share them with your friends and family and help spread important messages about household recycling.
Council will also be sharing them with local schools, to help educate students and families about the importance of recycling right.
Council hope the Talking Rubbish video clips will improve community recycling habits and ultimately reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.
From 7 November, you can find Talking Rubbish by searching at Frankston City Council
