The latest public recycling bins were unveiled recently by Mayor Tom Tate in Broadbeach, giving locals and visitors the choice of 14 locations to recycle from Surf Parade along Victoria Avenue (Broadbeach Mall) to Kurrawa Surf Club.
Cr Tate welcomed the extension of the Public Place Recycling program, already in operation in other key locations including Broadwater Parklands and Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens.
