Bass Coast Local News:
Cowes Recycle Bank open every day

The Cowes Recycle Bank is now open to the public seven days a week.

By Portal Admin - 4th September 2017 - Back to News

Following the June Council resolution to extend the opening hours of the facility, the Recycle Bank is now open on Friday to Tuesday from 10.30am until 3.30pm, and on Wednesday and Thursday from 1.00pm to 3.30pm.

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, said Cr Stephen Fullarton, who moved the Notice of Motion, had received feedback from local garden maintenance businesses asking for increased opening times.

"Some of the feedback received from local businesses indicated that having the Recycle Bank open on weekends is of no benefit to them, as they usually only operate on weekdays," Cr Rothfield said.

"Having the facility open seven days creates a better balance between local businesses wanting to dispose of waste during the week, and community members using it to clean up their properties on weekends."
