Recycling at Diamond Valley
Diamond Valley Residents are avid recyclers, source segregating their waste into 7 different streams:

  • Brown glass
  • White glass
  • Green glass
  • Aluminium Cans
  • Newspapers
  • Other ‘dry recyclables’ including cardboard, plastic, cartons etc.
  • Residual waste.

Recycling has a significant positive impact on the global environment.

  • Just one recycled glass bottle saves enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes.
  • Recycling one tonne of paper saves 13 trees, 31,000 litres of water and results in 75 per cent less air pollution.
  • By using recycled aluminium, 95% of the energy needed to produce cans from raw materials is saved.
  • Carbon emissions associated with making polyester fibre from used plastic soft drinks bottles are only around a fraction of the emissions associated with fibre made from virgin chemicals.
