The City of Stonnington has long been a passionate supporter of recycling, and this year is no different.  During National Recycling Week from 11 to 17 November we have a range of initiatives planned to help our community get their recycling sorted.

Meet a recycling A-lister

Did you know that aluminium is almost endlessly recyclable?  And, an aluminium can can be back on the shelf in as little as 60 days from when you tossed it in the recycling bin!

Drop in to our customer service centre at 311 Glenferrie Road to see the two huge aluminium foil orbs and learn tips and tricks for recycling right.

Celebrating our recycled roads

During the week visit streets across Stonnington whose road surfaces are made up of recycled products including plastic bags and toner cartridges.

To make the recycled roads easier to spot, we've added chalk stencils, so take a look before the rains makes them disappear!  See if you can see a difference between a traditional road surface and the new recycled surface ... we can't!

Here's where we've put the stencils:

  • Silver Street, Malvern
  • Hampden Road, Armadale (the High Street end)
  • Hope Street, Glen Iris
  • Kent Street, Windsor (Raileigh to High)
  • Boston Avenue, Malvern East
  • May Road, Hawksburn

A visit from the giant purple e-waste eater!

During the week Council's giant purple e-waste eater will be visiting three local primary schools for a school community e-waste collection day.  For the past few weeks our Environment team have been working with students from Malvern Valley, Armadale and Windsor primary schools to promote the upcoming collection day and teach the school community the importance of recycling e-waste.
