Council's recycling update 30 September 2019

Kerbside household recycling to resume

Council will resume recycling household material collected from yellow bins from Monday 30 September 2019.

Council has entered an interim agreement with KordaMentha, the receivers of Council’s previous contractor SKM, to temporarily process Hobsons Bay’s recycling at its Laverton North site.  This arrangement is temporary and short term but will remain until further notice.

Council is still working hard on a long term solution, however, in the meantime this interim agreement will put an end to Hobsons Bay’s recycling going to landfill.

There are some minor changes in what household items can be recycled. The kerbside household recycling collection no longer accepts soft plastics, hard plastic toys and CD/DVD cases.  Visit our Recycling page for more information on what can and cannot go in your recycling bin.
