Waste and recycling guide on way, with a difference

23 June 2022

Eurobodalla residents can expect their annual Household Waste and Recycling Calendar in their letterbox shortly, but the Council says this year the delivery will be different.

The handy calendar, which contains everything residents on the domestic collection service need to know about managing their household waste, is now printed in Council’s popular quarterly newsletter for residents, Living in Eurobodalla.

Once cut out of the newsletter, the calendar is conveniently sized to stick on your fridge or pin-board with those all-important collection days for red, yellow and green-lid bins.

The newsletter feature also has annual kerbside hard waste collection dates, and an A-to-Z list of waste types and how to manage them, including which items are accepted free at Council’s waste facilities.

Answers to frequently asked questions about waste and recycling plus a list of six common recycling mistakes round out the double-page feature.

Delivery starts Monday 27 June to all households in the shire. Australia Post will look after deliveries as usual, but behind the scenes there’s been a local shift.

Supported employees from Yumaro have organised the mailing, rather than a mailhouse in Melbourne. The job requires bundling and counting the newsletters according to Australia Post specifications, and Yumaro’s Jenna McAppion says her team has enjoyed the work.

“We’re really pleased to be working with the Council and playing a part in distributing the newsletter to residents,” she said. “The team at Moruya Post Office have been great to work with as well, really helpful.”

The new-look newsletter is now eight pages, up from four, and continues to be printed in the shire, only now on 100 per cent recycled Australian-made paper.

The household waste and recycling calendar can also be downloaded from Council’s website, where tips on avoiding single-use items, reducing general waste, and managing food waste can also be found.

Residents can also contact Council’s waste team on 4474 1024 for assistance with waste and recycling.
