Bellingen’s Own War on Waste

Everyone has been talking about the ABC show “War on Waste” but Bellingen actually entered the battle months ago!

Come be part of the growing wave of Australians who are concerned about all the rubbish that is polluting our beautiful oceans and country. Join the “Waste Not Bellingen” community group on Saturday, 3 June from 9:30-11:00 at the Bellingen Sustainability Centre, for our next monthly workshop “Reducing Waste in your Home”.

The “Waste Not Bellingen” group formed in March to start addressing local waste issues, and especially to start weaning our community off single use plastics. At this workshop, we will be having a look at our own household waste, and coming up with realistic and achievable Personal Action Plans to reduce it. Local Waste Educator Lisa Siegel will share the journey of Bellingen’s waste, and help participants plan their household’s own “War on Waste”. Attendance is by donation – bring some (packaging free) morning tea to share if you like. If you are really keen you can join the Waste Not action planning meeting after the workshop to be part of some exciting community education projects. Please join our Facebook Group “Waste Not Bellingen” to find out all the latest news!
