HAVING received a deluge of calls in connection with the stoppage of plastic collection at the recycling centre in January,the good news is that plastic will once again be accepted.

According to Marge Mitchell of Keep Hillcrest Beautiful Association, the association was recently approached by Dave Smith and Rosanne Griffin from Mpact, previously Mondi.

This is good news for the centre as it means the recycling site will again accept plastic from the public and Mpact will be the service provider.

“As you may know, the recycling centre in Delamore Road has been serving the public for eight years.

“It is run and managed by volunteers of the Keep Hillcrest Beautiful Association and is well supported by the public. The income we receive from collectors such as Mpact, Collect-a-Can and The Glass Recycling Company is distributed to the staff who receive 90% and 10% goes to the association.

“We request and ask that you not mix plastic with other items such as paper, tins, cardboard, etc. Please bring us your washed plastic in a separate bag,” said Griffin. - Supplied.
