Update on Decline in the Recycling Industry in Victoria
Thursday, 1 February, 2018 - 09:00
Council is looking into claims highlighted in a recent article by The Age newspaper in relation to the collapse of the recycling industry across Victoria. Council staff are currently in consultation with local recycling material processors who confirm that at present, there are no impact on Mansfield Council operations. We ask our residents to continue recycling as normal as collection services will remain unchanged.
We are working with the Victorian Government and industry as a matter of urgency to respond to the issues posed by the China restrictions on recycling, and to ensure this matter will not impact our residents.
We'll keep you updated as further details become available.
