The location and position of the current reverse vending machine at Moama Safeway is not appropriate nor is the site appropriately maintained.

The unloading of the station requires a truck to take up on of the lanes which creates a traffic hazard. It does attempt some traffic management however this still created a traffic risk for persons passing and traversing across the lane-way.

The position and configuration of this site makes disabled access limited, and its adherence to the Disability Access 2010 standards a reasonable expectation. 

Unfortunately the station is almost always full when we visit and it often take 2-3 trips to get a time when the station is not full of cans or bottles or both - likely a consequence of being close to the Victorian border where similar recycling stations do not exist. This suggests that the existing facility and site are not of sufficient size or capacity to handle the recycling demand at this location. It appears as though many people are simply dumping their recyclables out of frustration when they get to the station which I can understand - particularly if they have traveled any distance several times only to find the station full.

Another unfortunate consequence of the station being oversubscribed is that people leave the non recyclable debris used to cart the bottles/cans (cardboard boxes etc) scattered around the vicinity or in trolleys which reflects poorly on the township of Moama - particularly in tourist season. 

I would be grateful if you could review the appropriateness of this site and find an alternative configuration or location in order that we can make the recycling experience a safe and enjoyable one for our children without resulting in rubbish and debris as it reflects poorly on the Moama township more broadly.

This issue is not new! This unit has been in place for over 18 months with nil significant improvement in the cleanliness!
