Murfy Recycling Contamination Program
Murfy and a range of education materials were developed during a two-year pilot education program. This program was run as a partnership between government and industry.
Conceived as a tool to help councils reduce contamination in recycling, the Murfy concept brings the human element to the recycling process and teaches people more about recycling and why it's important to avoid contamination.
The Murfy graphics and education materials developed for the program are provided for use in council education campaigns or programs.
Sample council education resources, incorporating these visual tools, are also featured for reference and inspiration only. These education resources or publication materials may NOT BE REPRODUCED without the express permission from the applicable council and owner.
All other image resources and Murfy materials may used freely, in the appropriate context. Please include an acknowledgment of the Murfy Program and its sponsors as "the joint partners in the Murfy Recycling Contamination Project" in any publications or resources produced.
