RESIDENTS and visitors are able to make
sustainable choices when disposing of their
litter in Mirboo North and at Mossvale Park
now that South Gippsland Shire Council has
completed a public litter bin upgrade.
Materials that can be put in the new pub-
lic place recycling bins include glass bottles
and jars, rigid plastic bottles and contain-
ers, aluminium cans and items made from
paper and cardboard, including disposable
The project was sponsored by the Keep Aus-
tralia Beautiful Beverage Container Recycling
Community Grants, funded by Coca-Cola.
The council’s Waste Management supervi-
sor Pete Roberts was pleased the new service
could be offered in Mirboo North.
“This new service will help to reduce the
amount of litter and waste sent to landfill
each year and increase the recovery of recy-
clable packaging materials.
“Council would like to encourage our resi-
dents and visitors to use the service to its
full potential by recycling as much as pos-
sible, ” Mr Roberts said.
Similar projects implemented in Leon-
gatha in 2016 and in Korumburra in 2014
have been a great success.
These projects are consistent with the
aims and objectives of the council’s Waste
Management Strategy which supports proj-
ects that reduce waste sent to landfill and
recover recyclable materials.
The public recycling bins will reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.
