Recycling at your Local Council

Recycling is an important issue everywhere. Here at Skip hire Melbourne we do our best to ensure we are recycling as much as we can. As a local business in Melbourne’s northern suburbs, we like to be aware of what is on offer when it comes to recycling and waste management in our local area. We also support and encourage the correct disposal of waste. Many local councils in the northern suburbs provide various services that support waste reduction and recycling. The following are some of the councils in our area that offer excellent waste and recycling services. City of Darebin has a great resource recovery centre located at Kurnai Ave in Reservoir. Residents can drop of items that need special disposal, such as batteries, paint and light globes. Recyclables can also be taken there free of charge. There is also The Outlook Market which sells recycled goods, located at the resource centre. Moreland Council does not have any landfill sites or recycling centre, but does have other services that are helping the environment. The council has established community composting hubs that are run with community gardens. Moreland residents can register to use the hubs if they are unable to compost their food waste at home. Banyule Council has a waste recovery centre located on the corner of Banksia St and Waterdale Rd in Bellfield. Free of charge, residents can dispose of recyclable materials they have from home. These items include glass, cans, plastic containers, and paper, milk and juice cartons. There is also a drop of facility for hazardous materials like paint, batteries and gas cylinders. Moonee Valley Council has a transfer station for waste and recycling. The facility is located on Holems Rd Aberfeldie.
