Container recycling success in Sale

Recent figures released by the Victorian Government show that Sale’s Tambo Recycling Centre depot is among the State’s top performing collection points for the Container Deposit Scheme (CDS).

The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien said the Tambo Recycling Centre, which made a significant investment to support the CDS at both its Bairnsdale and Sale depots, has seen over 1.4 million containers successfully deposited and refunded at its Sale depot in the first two months of the scheme.

“The team at Tambo Recycling’s Sale depot, or Kwik Tips to many locals, are doing an amazing job keeping up with demand from locals,” Mr O’Brien said.

The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien visited Tambo Recycling’s Sale Depot, managed by Rhomi Webb, to check out the counting and sorting technology being used to facilitate the reintroduced Victorian Container Deposit Scheme.

“Recent figure released confirm that the Sale depot was among the top 10 performing regional collection points in the state.

“1.4 million containers represents $140k back into our local economy in just two short months – a great result for everyone involved.

“These figures send a clear message that’s Gippslanders are keen to get involved, help keep containers out of landfill and put some extra money in their pockets in the process.”

Mr O’Brien said the CDS is also a great fundraising option for local clubs, community groups and charities.

“Local community groups and charities can register online with CDS Vic to obtain a Donation Partner ID.

“Having a Donation Partner ID app allows others to donate to your organisation easily through the CDS Vic East app.”
