Recycling services continue
Council confirms that our recycling services remain unchanged, and that recycling continues to be separated, recycled and diverted from landfill.
While other Councils across Victoria have been affected by the short term closure of SKM, Maribyrnong Council engages VISY Recycling as its recyclable material processing service provider.
VISY's services remain unchanged, and all materials collected from recycling bins will continue to be transferred to the VISY Recycling Material Recovery Facility in Banyule, to be sorted and recycled.
With the recent changes in the recycling industry, it is more important than ever that residents continue to recycle, and that we reduce the amount of contamination being placed in our recycling bins. To support recycling in Australia, look for items that are made of recycled material when you go shopping, and look for items which have the Australasian Recycling Label.
Recycling processors in Victoria are already changing the way they sort plastics and paper/cardboard. Recyclable material is being transformed into new products such as road base, outdoor furniture and recycled office and toilet paper, and Victoria continues to process the bulk of its kerbside recyclables locally.
Council is committed to waste minimisation and waste diversion from landfill. We will continue to work with the Victorian Government and the recycling industry, to support local recycling.
