As a long-term solution to avoid sending recyclables to landfill Moyne Shire Council introduced a fourth kerbside bin for glass separation across the entire shire in February.
Glass is considered a contaminant when mixed with other recyclables because it smashes and mixes with paper and plastic, making them difficult to process.
All addresses within the shire currently receiving kerbside waste collection services received a purple-lidded glass only bin. If you feel you have missed out, please complete a service request for a purple-lidded glass only bin to be delivered to you as part of your kerbside waste collection service.
Our four bin system of waste collection – FOGO, Recycling, Glass and Landfill – is a best practise approach to prevent recyclable items going to landfill. It’s important you know what goes in each of the bins, visit the collection page for each bin in this section for full details on what goes in the bin. If in doubt, leave it out.
Changes to our kerbside collection service are not just better for the environment, it’s better economic management of our waste – it’s Better4Moyne
