    Public question time

    1.7.1 Recycled Material

    Ms Rosemary Martin submitted the following questions -

    “Given the current crisis facing the recycling industry and local councils in Victoria, is recycled material collected in East Gippsland currently going to landfill or being sorted and recycled? Once recycled material is sorted in Bairnsdale where does it end up?”

    Fiona Weigall, Acting Director Operations advised that yes indeed this is a very topical issue and one that we issued a media release on our website last week, reassuring the community that our recycling is indeed still being recycled and not going into landfill. There has been a lot of media attention around what’s happening to one of the recycling companies operating out of Melbourne and Geelong. That is not the company we use, so therefore our recycling is uninterrupted and at present our recycling is collected through our kerbside collection through the company that we use and it is firstly sorted in Bairnsdale then the sorted recycling goes down to a recycling service in Melbourne where it is further recycled and processed. I’d encourage the community to look at a good you tube video by Visy, it’s called Visy Recycling Education Video it shows not only the process that recycling goes through but also what we can recycle and what happens to those products and how they are processed through the system. Our recycling is very much still being recycled and reused and we would encourage our community to continue to use this important service as it is important that we continue to keep as much of our waste out of landfill as possible.

    1.7.2 Collection Service for Household Batteries and Light Globes

    Ms Rosemary Martin submitted the following question –

    “The Friends of Mallacoota has funded and managed a collection system for household batteries and light globes/fluorescent tubes for many years. In the absence of suitable toxic waste collection services to small towns members have to transport this material to Bairnsdale themselves. Could council implement a collection service suitable for small and remote communities to remove toxic materials from our townships?”

    Fiona Weigall, Acting Director Operations responded that Council currently does not collect household batteries and fluorescent tubes from remote sites. Bairnsdale transfer station is the only designated facility to accept house hold batteries, liquid paint
