In ABC Gold Coast's A-Z of the Gold Coast, 'R' stands for Rubbish, but as Breakfast presenter Bern Young found out from our very own Waste Education Officer, Toni Lee, it also stands for Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
Bern met Toni at Reedy Creek Waste and Recycling Centre, where they explored the changing face of waste management in our city.
