Bernadene Voss, Mayor, City of Port Phillip is in Port Melbourne, Victoria.October 17th, 2017 at 11:53pm
Port Phillip residents are now leading all Victorian households to recycle electronic waste (e-waste).
With an expanded e-waste recycling service being provided by Port Phillip Council, residents can now place all personal items that have a power cord or a battery, in their hard waste collection piles for recycling, or drop them off at Council’s transfer station in South Melbourne.
Mayor Bernadene Voss welcomes the expanded service and hopes all householders start using it immediately to divert the rising amount of electronic and technology products that end up as landfill.
“I’m proud our Council is the first in the state to include products that have a power cord or a battery into our free e-waste recycling service,” Cr Voss said. “This initiative places us at the forefront of diverting hazardous material from landfill, well ahead of next year’s state-wide ban on e-waste going to landfill.
“Common cord and battery items include keyboards, computer ‘mice’, remote controls, hairdryers, toasters, children’s toys, kitchen appliances, technology equipment with batteries, and several others.
“The newly included items are in addition to our usual e-waste products like TVs, computers and mobile phones. All of these items can now be picked up for free from residents who make a hard waste collection booking, or dropped-off for free at our South Melbourne transfer station.” Council stressed that e-waste items cannot be placed in the household recycling bin and that all recyclables collected, including residents’ e-waste, go to accredited reyclers.
The Council’s move comes as the Victorian Government this week announced its consultation on its proposed approach to managing e-waste in Victoria, including a statewide ban on e-waste going to landfill starting July 2018.
Council has received a Sustainability Victoria Improving Resource Recovery grant to part-fund the creation of a video to explain the new e-waste definition and upcoming e-waste landfill ban to residents; along with how and where to safely dispose of and recycle these items in Port Phillip. Call ASSIST on 9209 6777 or go to http://www.portphillip.vic.gov.au/hard_green_waste_collection.htm to book your e-waste collection as part of a hard waste collection at your home. All waste collection and recycling services provided by the City of Port Phillip and are undertaken by accredited recyclers, and adhere to Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA Victoria) regulations. Our waste is never transported interstate for disposal. Go to http://www.portphillip.vic.gov.au/where_recycling_goes.htm for more information.
