It’s National Recycling Week!
Recycling is a great entry point for conversations related to climate, environment and of course, waste.
We’ve found the community is always proud of the fact that they recycle – glass, plastics and soft plastics. Likewise, if something has been in the media (China Sword Policy), the community often gets disheartened about their efforts and the value of recycling. We’ve been pretty chuffed to work on projects to better support and prepare the community to give household items a second/third/fourth life!
Here are some events and activities to promote in your community, to re-engage and enthuse about the impact of our collective efforts! The focus this year, reducing contamination! From dog poo or bricks in a green bin; to bottle caps left on a milk bottle – each seem like logical inclusions but make resources unrecoverable!
Here are our staffs’ picks:
- Garage Sale Trail, Bayside: https://recyclingnearyou.com.au/event/10621
- Starting Your Zero Waste Journey, Monash: https://recyclingnearyou.com.au/event/10631
- Produce Swap, Malsbury: https://recyclingnearyou.com.au/event/10603
Another community friendly resource is know what and where you can recycle!
