An item from the useful ReThink Your Rubbish newsletter from the City of Greater Geelong. This newsletter and other waste and recycling information available at: http://www.geelongaustralia.com.au/council/reports/article/item/8cb96334370b7cf.aspx
Free electrical drop off day
What do you do with the old toaster or kettle once it’s broken?
These items can’t be recycled through your kerbside recycling bin.
Often small electrical appliances are put into the garbage bin. They then end up at landfill wasting valuable resources and leading to environmental damage.
The good news is that the City will be running a free drop off day in May 2014.
Electrical items contain a range of materials that can be separated for recycling and used in new products. Material collected on the day will be recycled by GDP Industries, a local Geelong business.
When and Where
The drop off day will be held on Saturday 31 May 2014 from 8:00am to 3:00pm.
The location is the Potato Shed, 41 Peninsula Drive, Drysdale. (Melways 470 F3)
