We have had a milestone here at Hotham with the very first truckload of baled cardboard leaving the mountain last week.¬†¬†Our new recycling depot includes a¬† cardboard baler and can store 36 bales weighing on average 250 to 300kgs each! These bales are then¬†taken to
Hotham is extremely proud of its¬†recycling¬†program which also allows for organic waste to be turned into¬†wonderful mulch for your garden! You can assist our staff by separating your recyclables into the correct bins and¬†taping or tying cardboard into bundles.
Well done to our dedicated solid waste management team who do a great job collecting waste and recycling throughout the mountain in the early hours - usually whilst most of us are still warm and asleep in bed!
