Hornsby Shire Council, located in the northern suburbs of Sydney wins top recycler in MobileMuster awards. Over the last 12 months the Thornleigh Community Recycling Centre in Hornsby collected 525kg of mobile phones and acccessories for recycling. The drive thru recycling centre makes it easy for residents to recycle a number of household items including mobile phones.
Local governments are often the first point of contact for residents and small businesses who want to recycle tricky items like their mobile phones and accessories. In partnership with MobileMuster, councils can help Australians to safely and securely recycle their mobile phones through an accredited government program.
Hornsby Shire Council Mayor Philip Ruddock (AO) said “Hornsby Shire Council has achieved this impressive result a number of times now, but of course the credit does not belong to us – it goes to each of our many residents who are so dedicated to recycling.”
“I would like to thank all of them for what they have helped us do and for their continuing commitment to the cause.”
