Moyne Shire Mayor Daniel Meade says that a number of local community groups from across the shire are working with council to deliver the new purple-lidded glass only bins.

“All residents who currently have a kerbside waste collection service will receive a purple-lidded bins in the coming weeks,”

“The community groups helping to deliver the bins will receive $5 for each bin delivered, making it a great fundraising activity for them during the holiday period.”

A new collection calendar showing which bins to put out each week will be delivered with the new glass only bin.

Councillor Meade says that a new waste collection guide will also be delivered to assist residents with separating their waste and current collection days will not change.

 Purple-lidded glass only bins will be emptied every four weeks.
 Yellow-lidded recycling and green-lidded FOGO bins will continue to be collected every two weeks, alternately.
 Red-lidded landfill bin remains a weekly collection.

“Glass is considered a contaminant as it breaks and cannot be separated from other recyclables. By separating it into a glass only bin all materials become easier and more economical to process,"

“Once separated, the glass will be crushed at a local recycling depot and used as a substitute for sand in road base.

“Until the purple-lidded glass only bin is delivered, glass goes in the red-lidded landfill bin or can be taken to your nearest Moyne Shire waste facility."
