Hume continues to collect household recycling bins

Hume City Council was one of 33 Victorian Councils to receive advice from its contracted recycling sorting facility operator that it would stop accepting material at its three sites, effective as of Friday 26 July 2019.

Council’s recycling collections equate to approximately 7,600 recycling bins every single week day.

While there is no change to normal recycling collection schedules, recycling material will be redirected to landfill.

Council is seeking further advice about its existing contract, as well as working with the Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group (MWRRG) to understand the implications of the Supreme Court order issued to SKM Corporate on Friday 2 August 2019.

Council will continue to update the community as more information is available.

Further information

There has never been a more important time to consider where you can reduce and reuse recyclable materials and shop smart by avoiding unnecessary packaging.

Residents can still recycle through a range of initiatives, including soft-plastic stations at supermarkets, including Coles and Woolworths. For more information, visit www.redcycle.net.au.

If you have moved to a new house or have some big deliveries, you can drop off large quantities of paper and cardboard at a range of Visy facilities in Victoria, including in Campbellfield. For more information, visit www.visy.com.au.

Residents also have the opportunity to drop off clean and sorted recyclables at Council’s Resource Recovery Centres in Campbellfield and Sunbury. All recyclables will be transferred to a recycling service provider at no cost.
