Locals are reminded to avoid complacency surrounding their recycling habits.
It's been reported recently that Goulburn's recycling facility Endeavour Industries has been dealing with an increase of contamination among recycling that includes items like clothing, dirty nappies, food scraps and even used diabetic needles.
Margaret from the facility urged locals to be wary of what's being placed in their yellow bins.
"What we'd really like to put out to the community is that contamination in the recycling is just not acceptable. The only five things that we will recycle is P.E.T plastic, steel cans, aluminium cans and glass as well as paper and cardboard."
