Through the Zero Waste SA BackLight Household Light Globe Recycling Program, Mitre 10 and True Value Hardware stores will take back used or unwanted light globes from householders (not commercial users) for recycling, free of charge.
The nearest Mitre 10 store is Mitre 10 Handy Moonta at Lot 4 Military Road, Moonta, 5558 SA, which has recycling boxes located behind the checkout registers. Customers can bring in their old light globes and give them to staff.
The nearest True Value Store is Wallaroo Hardware at 21 Owen Tce, Wallaroo
Householders are advised not to place compact fluorescent globes or other fluorescent tubes in their kerbside recycling bin. These items need to be recycled with a specific process. The mercury powder contained in them is a significant contamination concern for the broader recycling industry.
The Environment Protection (Waste to Resources) Policy 2010 will ban fluorescent and other mercury containing lighting from landfill, from September 2012 in metropolitan Adelaide, and September 2013 for the rest of the State.
There are fee-for-service options available for commercial and industrial users to ensure their fluoro tubes and globes are diverted from landfill and recycled such as CMA Ecocycle, Lamp Recyclers, Chemsal, or CYL recycle.
The District Council of the Copper Coast is exploring the provision of a fortnightly or monthly green waste kerbside collection service. We understand all residents may not require this service and therefore are looking at a voluntary system based on residents opting in. The more residents that are interested in the service, the cheaper it is for all those involved.
(Rates will be reviewed with likely increases on 1st January 2013 subject to impact of the Carbon Tax Legislation Implementation)
