‘Help Us Help You’ campaign features local recycling facility staff

Barry Craig from Cowra Council features in a new ad campaign on local recycling facilities and their staff that aims to give residents a behind-the-scenes look at how recycling is sorted.

Barry says he's seen almost everything turn up in recycling waste, including dead animals.

"We are human, and we've got to touch your recycling. Take a little bit more care as to what goes in your recycling because we want to do our job and get all the recyclables out of the recycling."

Check out Barry, the Cowra MRF team and some of the Cowra Junior League players here!
