Casterton Public Place Recycling (PPR) - Installation in progress

As a result of the feedback provided by the community, the replacement of existing bins with Public Place Recycling (PPR) bins in Casterton has commenced. All respondents were in support of the project, and the proposed locations for installation (as per plans within the project document library, with slight adjustments based on installation needs). These works have commenced and it is anticipated all replacement works will be completed by the end of July 2019. There could be some footpath restrictions in the township while the new infrastructure is installed. Council would like to thank all those whom are impacted for their patience while the works are being undertaken.

Background

PPR plays an important part of the overall recycling systems in keeping a significant amount of resources out of landfill. The replacement of the existing bins in Casterton provides a number of benefits to the community, including;

  • Allow the community to recycle on a daily basis within public spaces;
  • Reduce the amount of litter in the community as a result of littering and pest animals;
  • The new infrastructure will be more aesthetically pleasing with new bin enclosures providing better protection to bins and the stainless steel enclosures don’t require maintenance; and
  • Reduced costs to Council as the new infrastructure will mean there is a reduction in the costs of collection and maintenance.

Through the use of PPR, Glenelg Shire Council (GSC) lowers its carbon footprint as well as reducing costs of processing waste by removing valuable resources out of landfill. In the last five years, Glenelg Shire Council has made significant progress in the rollout of a sound PPR system throughout the Shire.
