Hobart Council a Recycling Backwater -

Hobart Council a Recycling Backwater - Doug Parkinson, MLC - Tasmanian Government Media Releases

Doug Parkinson MLC, today called on the Hobart City Council to stop being grubby and to introduce a worthwhile recycling system for Hobart ratepayers.

?This council has lost its way, after promising to be recycling cardboard by October this year it has failed again.

?For a Capital City, this Council has the worst record in the Country on recycling and is now lagging far behind the Glenorchy City Council.

?Many of Tasmania?s regional councils even have a better record and the Hobart Councillors need to pick up their act and follow suit.

?In Glenorchy there is a second wheelie bin with a yellow lid to take mixed recyclables such as plastics, glass, cardboard, paper, aluminium and steel containers, etc, Hobart needs the same.

?The Glenorchy system is geared for the major corporate recycler Colex and its ?state of the art? sorting and baling facility at Lutana.

?It?s high time the HCC got its act together and got serious about recycling,? said Mr Parkinson.
