Stonnington City Council Says...

Council's ability to divert kerbside waste from landfill was significantly impacted by the Victorian recycling crisis. Council's contracted recycling facility (SKM) was closed for 10 weeks, resulting in 1,800 tonnes of household recyclables disposed to landfill. Without the closure, Council would have improved its diversion rate (37.7 per cent).
