MORE LONG TERM CAR PARKING IN CENTRAL GEELONG

We have introduced more longer term on-street car parking in Central Geelong. There are now more all day, four-hour and three-hour

parking spaces in areas adjacent to the inner core of Central Geelong.

We have also introduced $4 and $5 capped fees for all day parking in selected on-street parking locations.

Check the map below for details of the new parking arrangements.

HELP US LEAD THE WAY IN RECYCLING

Have you ever thought about what happens to a plastic drink bottle after

you throw it in your garbage bin? It ends up getting buried as landfill and will

remain there forever. Plastics do not break down in landfill.

Imagine if you throw away three plastic bottles a week. If every household in

Greater Geelong did the same, that’s a whopping 300,000 plastic bottles

being buried every week. In one year we would have to bury 15.6 million

plastic bottles! Please put them in the recycling bin.

WHAT PLASTICS CAN BE RECYCLED?

Put simply, hard plastics such as ice cream tubs, detergent containers and

drink bottles can be recycled so should be thrown in your yellow lid bin.

Soft plastics, such as plastic bags and cling wrap can NOT be recycled

and need to go in your red lid bin. If you're collecting recylables in plastic

bags, please make sure these don't get thrown in the recycling bin too.

RECYCLE YOUR ANALOGUE TV FOR $5 - OFFER EXTENDED FOR JULY

During June, more than 1,200 people took advantage of the $5 offer to

recycle their old TVs. The offer has now been extended for the month of July.

The offer is available at Drysdale Resource Recovery Centre (Becks Road)

or North Geelong Resource Recovery Centre (Douro Street). The charge

goes towards the cost to recycle materials.

TVs are 98 per cent recyclable. Local company GDP Industries employs

people with disabilities to dismantle the TVs at its North Geelong plant.

The parts are then sent off for recycling.

NEW STATE GOVERNMENT LANDFILL TAX CAUSES TIP FEES TO

INCREASE

The State Government has increased its landfill from $30 per tonne to $44

per tonne as part of its ongoing campaign to reduce waste going to landfill.

The City has absorbed as much of the cost increase as possible however

the new tax means tip fees will have increased.

For example:

• Car boot load is now $14.50 (previously $12.50)

• Utes, vans, single axle trailers (waterline) is now $31.50

(previously $27.50)

The full price list is at www.geelongaustralia.com.au
