One of Ballarat's more popular glass drop off sites is on the move today. 

The glass drop off site at Big W will shift to the Eastwood Street Shopping Centre, near the Ballarat Police Station.

Council has made the decision to move the glass drop off site due to increased traffic at Alfred Square, due to the festive season, which will require more frequent skip changeovers. 

Terry Demeo, Director of Infrastructure and Environment with the City of Ballarat, said the Pass on Glass initiative is still being well supported by residents.

“All our Pass on Glass sites have been well supported by our residents, thanks to the co-operation of our extended business community and shopping centre operators,” Mr Demeo said.

“We are exceptionally grateful for how the Ballarat community continues to work together to keep glass out of their recycling bins.”

The City of Ballarat is also urging residents to "remain vigilant" this festive season, by only putting cardboard, paper, aluminium and steel cans, and certain plastic containers.
