Granville recyclers will be able to use the new facility from today, including nine Reverse Vending Machines, each of which accepts glass bottles, plastic bottles, cartons and aluminium cans all at the same machine. Busy recyclers can also take advantage of a new bag drop service for those short on time, whilst TOMRA’s bulk commercial sorting system is perfect for businesses and community groups with high numbers of containers to process. TOMRA will also be offering a pick up service for local businesses and community groups that want to make recycling their containers even easier and more rewarding.
President of TOMRA Collection Australia, Ryan Buzzell, says the state-of-the-art center is a testament to the enthusiasm with which communities across the state, have taken to recycling their drink containers.
“The numbers speak volumes about the willingness of NSW recyclers to tackle container litter in their communities. Nowhere more so than in Granville, where container recycling has been so popular that it made total sense for us to build our first state-of-the-art recycling center here.”
“We hope it serves as a reminder of the great job the local community is doing in recycling their containers, but also as encouragement for those who aren’t yet making use of the scheme to do so. The more people who choose ‘clean-loop’, bottle to bottle recycling over other recycling options, the better our chances of reducing the amount of new plastic being produced, and the easier it’ll be to stop container litter ending up in our environment,” said Mr. Buzzell.
