Insolvent recycler SKM has left a Melbourne logistics firm holding 700 shipping containers filled with thousands of tonnes of recyclable waste from households all over Melbourne.
Ivan Vanis is chief executive officer of Tasman Logistics, which is headquartered in the industrial suburb of Brooklyn, near Footscray.

The company agreed to store hundreds of shipping containers for SKM Corporate before it became insolvent last week.
The containers have been there for more than two years – newspapers and milk containers dated from 2017 were among the recyclables in one container The Age photographed on Friday.
“We are stuck with the containers; they’re costing us $50,000 a week just to hold them here,” said Mr Vanis, a co-owner of the company.
Until last month, SKM was processing recycling waste for over half of Melbourne's population. It has now stopped, forcing 15 of the 30 councils that were sending their waste to SKM to instead bury it in landfill.
