No green-light for Mildura Council in recycling crisis

MILDURA Council says it has been forced to continue landfilling residents’ kerbside recycling, despite one Victorian recycling plant reopening this week. 

On Tuesday, EPA officers said SKM Services Pty Ltd could start accepting recyclables at its Laverton North site again after the Laverton and Coolaroo sites were ordered to stop accepting waste last month over concerns of fire hazards due to dangerous stockpiling. 

The shutdown of the plants left many Victorian councils, including Mildura, unable to deliver kerbside recycling to SKM.
