Shoalhaven City Council has given an assurance that the majority of items placed into recycling bins are processed locally and not trucked off interstate.
The assurance comes following a Four Corners expose revealing some Councils were paying to have the waste trucked into Queensland and Victoria for processing.
Shoalhaven Mayor Amanda Findley says our local waste services are directly in charge of the landfill.
She also says the handling of glass waste is processed locally and they deserve praise for their efforts.
