EWaste collection day-next Sun 15th May
The third electronic waste (ewaste) collection day where unwanted computers, monitors televisions etc can be dropped off will be held at
Sunday 15th May 8am - 4pm
carpark Moorleigh Community Centre
90-92 Bignell Rd East Bentleigh
It is a drive-in drive-out efficient process with staff collecting the items from carboots.
The previous collection days at Carnegie and Caulfield have been incredibly successful with record amounts collected-Almost all of the items collected can be broken down and recycled,reducing what would otherwise go to landfill.
The recent State budget raised landfill costs 10% above the prev govt's projected increases to a now $44 per tonne in 2011/12- in 08/09 it was $9 per tonne!
The Environmental Advisory committee will meet shortly to consider recommendations for further ewaste initiatives in the next financial year.
