Some hope in recycling crisis
THE contractor responsible for collecting Glenelg Shire’s recycling will see if it can get some of the recycled goods it has been storing during the recent crisis into a plant that will be reopened with a State Government loan.
But it says residents should continue to keep up the good work in sorting their recyclables and only putting their bins out when full in order to help avoid sending it to landfill.
The government yesterday announced a $10 million loan to KordaMentha, the receivers of failed recycler SKM, to get the plants of what was the state’s largest processor up and running again.
These have been closed for several weeks after being shut by SKM, which was subsequently wound up by Supreme Court order due to owing creditors tens of millions of dollars.
