27/01/2016 Together with the City of Perth the MRC promoted improved waste and recycling opportunities at this year’s Australia Day Skyshow. Over 300,000 people flocked to the Perth foreshore to enjoy the Australia Day skyshow. While the patrons enjoyed the festivities the City of Perth, Keep Australia Beautiful and the MRC were working to encourage people to not only put their rubbish in the bin but into the right bin. This was done through the provision of recycling bags, messaging on the bins, Captain Recycle moving through the crowd, bin monitoring and the operation of recycling stations on the Perth foreshore. Over 20 tonnes of waste was collected and of this about 35% was recycled.
