More Support For Victoria’s Recycling Sector
The Andrews Labor Government is taking further action to support Victoria’s recycling sector, with a $10 million loan to SKM’s receivers KordaMentha to help clean-up SKM sites and resume waste processing. At the same time the Government is beginning the process to overhaul kerbside recycling.
The $10 million loan will help clear waste stockpiles and fund essential maintenance work to get SKM’s plants back up and running, while meeting strict environmental and safety standards.
The Laverton site will be the first to return to operation with stockpile clearing to begin within the week and some processing expected to start within five weeks. Further work is required to bring the Hallam, Geelong and Coolaroo facilities back on line.
