More ways for community to ‘waste less, recycle more’

More ways for community to ‘waste less, recycle more’

The Barossa Council are pleased to have extended their partnership with the Father’s Farm, offering more options to ‘waste less, recycle more’.

Following the successful trials throughout the 2018-19 financial year both the light industrial soft plastics and household e-waste schemes have been extended. Mayor Bim Lange says “We know the community are interested in avenues for ecological and responsible waste disposal and recycling. Extending both the soft plastics and e-waste initiatives with John’s Shed brings us close to achieving our targets for waste reduction”

Local light industry looking to dispose of soft plastics items such as plastic film, rinsed chemical drums, irrigation/dripper pipes and green strappings. Those with large loads are encouraged to contact Father’s Farm Manager, Mr Tony Thiele on 0487 703 470, to organise disposal ahead of time.

Households with surplus e-waste are welcome to visit Father’s Farm between 8.30am – 12.30pm Thursdays and Saturdays at 110 Moppa Road South, Nuriootpa.

A wide range of goods are accepted, with Manager Mr Thiele explaining, “If it’s got an electrical cord, we’ll take it!”

Community can dispose of e-waste items free of charge (with exception of fridges which will incur a $10 degassing fee).
