MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire will collect household recycling bins weekly from Monday 18 December until Friday 2 February.
The change from the usual fortnightly recycling service aims to help residents better dispose of their waste over summer.
The 240-litre recycling bin with the blue lid will be collected weekly on the usual day.
Recyclable items include aluminium and steel cans and foil, rigid and solid plastic items, such as 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.
Recycling tips: Don’t place items in a plastic bag and empty containers of contents/liquids.
Recyclables that can’t fit into a bin can be taken to rubbish tips at Rye, Mornington and Tyabb, or hoppers at Sorrento, Dromana and Flinders for free.
