Year-round recycling for the Moreland City Council Community, enabled by Ecoactiv *
With sustainability on everyone’s mind, individuals, companies and government bodies have been looking for ways to improve collection and recycling services. Moreland City Council is the latest Melbourne council that is implementing an online recycling booking platform, as part of the transition to a zero-waste municipality.
Moreland Council has partnered with Ecoactiv to roll out the Ecoactiv Digital Platform which will offer the community year-round recycling and disposal services.
As of July 2020, people within the community can give their unwanted electronics, appliances, batteries and selected packaging and materials new life, through the Platform.
Moreland and Ecoactiv are working together to add more items to this list, for a whole of house, whole of business and the whole of building solution. Items such as furniture, mattresses, apparel and textiles and more disposal services, such as donation, will be key additions in coming months. Together, we can all divert more waste away from landfill and work towards a circular economy.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will COVID-19 impact my collection?
To keep staff, customers and the wider public safe, we have increased the safety of our service in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our collection service is still on-going and our collection team are practising safe pickups, which means they will not be entering premises and won’t make physical contact with customers. Simply tell us where you will leave your packaged items and we will collect, transport and process them.
To further ensure the safety of our customers and staff, we will not be accepting customer drop-offs to our processing facilities until further notice.
Will the Ecoactiv service cost me?
IT items and related accessories are recycled at no cost to the customer, as they’re sponsored by Ecoactiv partners.
Other items may incur a fee, depending on the weight, size and whether the customer wants the item to be collected from their home.

Is the recycling done in Australia or done offshore?
No items are shipped offshore, they are all dismantled and processed in Australia.
Can I use any box to package my items?
Yes, any durable box is suitable. Once you go through the 3-step process, you will receive an email with packaging and labelling instructions. It is important that you follow the instructions as some waste may go to one recycling facility and should be grouped together, while another “batch” might go to another location.
To avoid damaging other parcels transported by the courier, it is best if items are either securely packed in boxes or wrapped in bubble or cling wrap.
Do you destroy data on IT devices?
Your data is effectively destroyed during the shredding and recycling process and only raw materials and commodities remain after that.
Ecoactiv audits all this activity from collection, shipping, to receipt at the approved facility through to its destruction and certification.
Our recycling plants are certified and comply with Australian and international standards (AS/NZS:5377 and ISO 14001:2015).
