Mo­bile col­lec­tion point

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Hind­marsh Shire Youth Coun­cil has or­gan­ised a pro­gram to stop mo­bile phones end­ing up in land­fill.

The coun­cil has set up a ‘Mo­bile Muster’ col­lec­tion point at the shire’s Nhill coun­cil of­fice.

Mo­bile Muster is a free mo­bile phone re­cy­cling pro­gram in Aus­tralia, funded by hand­set man­u­fac­tur­ers and net­work car­ri­ers.

The pro­gram ac­cepts all brands of mo­bile phones, bat­ter­ies, charg­ers and ac­ces­sories, which are then re­cy­cled.

Hind­marsh Shire Youth Coun­cil be­lieves it is much bet­ter for peo­ple to re­cy­cle their elec­tronic waste than let­ting it go to land­fill.

Peo­ple liv­ing out­side of Nhill are in­vited to drop their e-waste off at the near­est coun­cil cus­tomer ser­vice cen­tre.

The Hind­marsh Shire Youth Coun­cil is made up of stu­dents be­tween the ages of 12 and 18 in Hind­marsh, with an in­ter­est in com­mu­nity is­sues and lead­er­ship.

The youth coun­cil meets with Hind­marsh Shire coun­cil­lors and at­tends coun­cil meet­ings.

From July this year, there will be a ban on e-waste go­ing into land­fill.

Peo­ple want­ing to make use of the mo­bile muster col­lec­tion point can visit Hind­marsh Shire’s Nhill of­fice at 92 Nel­son Street.
