You would be aware that Victoria is facing a crisis in recycling following a ban on SKM, one of the states biggest recyclers accepting material at its sites including Laverton North and Coolaroo.

You can read a report on this serious issue here

We are aware that some rural Councils have temporarily ceased collection of recyclables and are asking residents to stockpile their recycling instead.

Generally there are no provisions in our EBA’s to allow members who collect recycling to be stood down without pay.

But if your employment is affected in anyway by this crisis please speak to your delegate or ring the ASU Member Contact Centre on 1300 855 570.
