A new era has dawned in the City of Glen Eira. New recycle bins, with bright yellow lids, have been distributed (originally with crime-scene-style “Do not use until July” tape on them), and yesterday the new recycle truck did its first fortnightly run down our street.
There are three bits of good news associated with this:
- Firstly, all the recycling goes in the one big bin. No mucking about with separate cardboard/paper and bottle/can bins.
- They said we can do what we want with the old small recycle bins (same type as these). Yay, a freebie! Cleaned out, the bottle bin might make a good toy box.
- Best, they’re now accepting all plastic recycle codes (1 to 7). Previously they could only take 1 to 3.
(Josh, has your council upgraded too, or do you want to bring all your saved up 4 to 7 plastic over here?)
