A beautiful Melbourne morning out and about with David Davis MP in Prahran and Albert Park listening to locals. People wanted to talk about Victoria’s recycling crisis and were not impressed by the inaction of the Andrews’ government.
In February this year more than 22,000 tonnes of recyclable materials were sent to landfill because Labor has failed to adequately manage waste system. It is now a month since the latest shutdown, with more than 4,000 tonnes of recyclables currently going to landfill each week. It is likely that more than 40,000 tonnes of recyclables will be sent to landfill as a result of the latest crisis.
The latest band-aid measures will not solve the recycling crisis. It’s time for Labor to stop dithering and start fixing.
