Recycling bins in parks

Yarra-Mayor-Alison-Clarke-and-Environment-Minister-Ryan-SmithIt will soon be easier to recycle when you're out and about in Yarra, thanks to a State Government scheme to install recycling bins in 22 parks and 15 sports grounds.

In April 2011, the State Government granted Council almost $269,000 to fund the bin rollout.

Victorian Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith met with Yarra's then-Mayor Alison Clarke to announce the grant (as pictured at right).

The funding will help make recycling bins a permanent feature of public spaces, as they are in people's homes.

Here is a link to the State Government's media release.
