Start to summer recycling


HOUSEHOLD recycling bins will be collected weekly on the Mornington Peninsula from Monday 16 December until Friday 31 January 2020.

Mornington Peninsula Shire issued a news release saying it was “working hard towards a cleaner peninsula and encourage our community to reduce, reuse, recycle”.

Recyclables should not be placed in plastic bags and can also be taken free to resource recovery centres at Rye, Tyabb and Mornington and hoppers at Dromana, Sorrento and Flinders.

Items that can be recycled include aluminium and steel cans and foil; rigid and solid plastic items, such as children’s toys, kitchen ware, cups and drink bottles; pots and pans; wrapping paper and envelopes; cardboard, newspapers and magazines; milk, juice and soft drink bottles; glass bottles and jars.

Tips for effective recycling include not placing anything inside plastic bags and emptying contents from containers.

Recyclables too large for the bin can be taken to a rubbish tip (Rye, Mornington and Tyabb) or hopper (Sorrento, Dromana and Flinders) for free.
