The City of Melbourne and two other local councils restarted household recycling pick-ups on Monday, September 23 after SKM’s biggest processing plant reopened.
KordaMentha took over the site and cleared 10,000 of tonnes of stockpiled waste and received a loan from the state government.
The City of Melbourne was one of 33 local councils that had its recycling processes completely disrupted by the collapse of recycling company SKM in July.
Lord Mayor Sally Capp said the council had reached an agreement with KordaMentha.
“The short-term arrangement to process household recycling was reached while Kordamentha seeks to finalise the sale of SKM,” she said.
“We urge the community to continue separating their waste and recycling. It’s vital that general waste not be mixed in with recycling to ensure recycling services are sustainable and viable.”
