Circular Waste Trial
Mount Barker District Council is one of nine councils to sign a Memorandum of Understanding, as part of the LGA's Circular Procurement Pilot Project, to prioritise buying products made from recycled materials.
Mayor Ann Ferguson said: “Mount Barker District Council is proud to be part of the Circular Procurement Project to help achieve a sustainable future for our growing community.”
The participating councils are seeking to combine their collective buying power to significantly increase demand for recyclable materials in South Australia.
Examples of products made of recycled materials that can be purchased by councils include road and construction materials, street furniture, bollards, office stationery and compost.
The other participating councils include Adelaide Hills Council, City of Burnside, City of Charles Sturt, City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters, City of Onkaparinga, City of Port Adelaide Enfield, City of Prospect and Rural City of Murray Bridge.
