Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

As councils grapple with helping their rate payers with disposal of electronic equipment and the State Government has previously announced, we find courtesy of an article on the In Business website, that they are providing funding for waste recycling and reuse projects.

Note sure what it means for Unley but here is the article.


The State Government has allocated $1.67 million in funding for metropolitan infrastructure projects to support recycling and waste reuse projects.

“Funding has been awarded to six companies for projects to improve the processing of electronic waste, organics and soft plastics, as well as mixed commercial and industrial waste,” says SA Sustainability, Environment and Conservation Minister, Paul Caica.

Grants and recipients include:

• $300,000 for Northern Adelaide Waste Management Authority to establish a regional transfer station and a Salvage and Save Operation.

• $300,000 for Plastic Granulating Services to install equipment for processing plastic films.

• $300,000 for Solo Resource Recovery to redevelop the Adelaide Waste and Recycling Centre in North Plympton, Adelaide.

• $300,000 for Transpacific Industries, which will go towards a major $4 million upgrade of the Wingfield Resource Recovery and Waste Transfer Station.

• $175,000 for Sims Recycling Solutions for a new e‐waste storage collection facility.
