Milk Bottle Recycling

Sustainability

Bring us your milk bottles!

South Melbourne Market and Vanden Recycling have teamed up on an exciting recycling initiative to convert plastic HDPE milk bottles into pipes, pallets and decking boards. During Sustainable September, we are asking our customers to bring their milk bottles from home. We’ll bale them up using our Mil-Tek Machine and send them off to Vanden Recycling whose customers transform them into other commodities.

Simply clean out your plastic milk bottles and lids using cold water, bring them into the Market and pop them in our recycling bin, located in SO:ME Space between 19-30 Sep.
