Buninyong Pass on Glass
The City of Ballarat has decided to relocate the Buninyong Pass on Glass site to a more convenient location at the Buninyong Recreation Reserve.
The new site is accessible from the Forest Street entrance and is only 450 metres east of the current site behind the Buninyong BP Service Station and newsagency.
The new site is in response to an overwhelming response to the Pass on Glass initiative in Buninyong, with more than 30 tonnes of glass collected between September 30 and December 31, 2019. That is approximately 40-45% of the glass generated by Ballarat (and Buninyong) residents at this time of the year. The City had already doubled the Pass on Glass site capacity at Buninyong from a 1.5 to 3 cubic metre skip and increased service frequency from 2 to 4 times per week.
The new site at the Recreation Reserve will allow for further expansion to include a second skip if needed.
