Mr WAKELING (Ferntree Gully) – My question is to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change. Victorians are well aware of the fact that we are facing a recycling crisis, and I have had a number of constituents in my electorate raise concerns with me about this important issue.
Knox residents are very concerned about the thought that their recycled products will actually end up in landfill.
I am of the understanding that the Knox City Council has organised an interim arrangement for recycled products to be stored so that they do not go to landfill; however, this is only an interim arrangement and will only potentially last for a short period of time.
Therefore it is in the interests of my constituents to ensure that there is a long-term solution to this very important issue.
My question to the minister is: can the minister please advise my community what actions have been taken by the minister to ensure that there is a long-term solution to ensure that recycled products in Knox do not end up in landfill?
