Recycling creates jobs and through Electronic Recycling Australia (ERA) in Ottoway, the City of PAE supports Minda to employ hundreds of supported workers living with a disability.
The City of PAE takes all of your electronic waste to ERA and they also have public drop off sites throughout PAE. As well as electronics, they accept expanded polystyrene, which cannot be recycled through your yellow bins at home.
To save this material from landfill and ensure it is recycled there is a polystyrene drop off at ERA, 301 Grand Junction Road, Ottoway.
Polystyrene must be clean and free from any sticky tape, labels, food waste etc. There are different types of polystyrene. ERA accepts the hard polystyrene that breaks (ie not foam meat trays).
By recycling items such as electronics and polystyrene at ERA, you are not only helping to ensure that things are recycled in the correct way, but helping Minda to provide care, accommodation, support, activities and employment for people who need it.
