Trial program for those in the Waverley Council area

Waverley Council is running a trial textile and e-waste collection and recovery from apartment complexes. Below is more information:

What’s the trial?
It’s a way for the Council’s waste team to determine how it can best support apartment blocks to recycle electronic waste and textiles (old clothing/linen etc) instead of it going to landfill. The Council is keen to work with a select number of strata buildings with 40+ apartments to pilot dedicated recycling services.

Snapshot of how it works:
Council will connect the Service Provider with yourself (or other delegated building contact, i.e. Building Manager) to conduct a site visit. The Service Provider will provide appropriate collection bins for textiles and e-waste, and discuss an appropriate servicing frequency of each stream. The buildings selected will be conditional – based on space and access requirements.

There is no cost to the building. It is based on a six month trial, with potential for extension if the program is successful.

What’s in it for you?
Better recycling services at your building for owners and tenants, the feel-good factor of knowing stuff is recycled and not adding to landfill.
