Eurobodalla’s council is making its community recycling center more mobile to make it easier for residents to drop off a range of common household waste for recycling. Household batteries, old phones and chargers, print cartridges and x-rays can be dropped off in custom-made recycling collection bins at Batemans Bay Library, Narooma Library and the Council Administration Building in Moruya. Two mobile versions of the bins are also available on loan for a fixed period, including for events. The council’s director of waste services, Nathan Ladmore, said the items collected will be recycled through the community recycling center, which is based at the Surf Beach waste management facility. “We want the community recycling center to be accessible to everyone, especially those in the south of the county,” he said. “We have long collected household batteries, cell phones and their accessories and print cartridges for recycling in local libraries and the council administration building, but they were previously in separate bins. “We designed these new trash cans to streamline the process and also make them easy to deliver to any part of the community who would like to be a short-term collection point. Mr Ladmore said x-rays were a new addition to the collection as council often received calls from residents asking where and how they can be recycled. In addition to household quantities of household batteries, printer cartridges, cell phones and x-rays, a range of items can be dropped off free of charge for recycling at the Surf Beach Community Recycling Center, including paint, bottles. gas, fire extinguishers, engine and other oils, smoke detectors, fluoride globes and tubes and car batteries.
