Australians each send an average of 23kg of textiles to landfill every year. Many of us are getting better at giving unwanted items of clothing a new life by donating to op-shops, giving them to a friend or selling them online. Unfortunately, a stubborn stain or a tear often sees clothes heading to landfill. It’s the same with some smaller electronics – how do you dispose of your faulty electric toothbrush or a hairdryer that’s stopped working?

Mornington Peninsula Shire can help. Under an initiative sparked by the Flinders Lions Club, the Shire’s new recycling trailer accepts all clean clothing, hats, shoes, bags and small electrical appliances such as hairdryers, toasters, drills, mobile phones, tablets and laptops – just remove any loose batteries first and recycle them at participating centres. The trailer is available for hire by community groups and organisations. It can be booked for up to four weeks and will be delivered to each location. All items will be collected by SCRgroup for sorting. Worn-out textiles will be transformed into wash rags and biofuel, and reusable items will be donated to op-shops or given a second life in global communities that need them most. Faulty electronics are recycled on the Peninsula.

Mayor Despi O’Connor said the initiative was an action to come out of the Shire’s Beyond Zero waste strategy. “I hope many community groups jump on this opportunity and book the trailer for their town,” Cr O’Connor said. “Join our mission to send zero waste to landfill and take on this declutter challenge to free your home of unwanted clothing and electronic waste.”
