Recycling Station
Run by our lovely volunteers.

Where is it all going to be recycled?

Where possible we have tried to find local options for some of the items that can be recycled closer to home or that can't be processed by curbside recycling. Our volunteers will be dispatching items to the following:

Terracycle

TerraCycle reuses, upcycles and recycles waste instead of incinerating or landfilling it. We collect pens and markers, oral care, and coffee pods to send to TerraCycle though their targeted recycling programs. Find out more at www.terracycle.com. You might even find a free recycling
option for your workplace or organisation.

SIMS Metal Management

We are collecting metal bottle caps and lids to take to SIMS Metal Management in Malaga for recycling. You can also drop off scrap metal direct to SIMS and they offer free recycling for televisions and e-waste. Find out more at www.simsmm.com.au

Aussie Bread Tags for Wheelchairs

A community program where individuals and organisations collect bread tags to raise money to pay for wheelchairs for those in need in South Africa. Tags from some states are still sent to South Africa, where they are sold and turned mainly into seedling trays, but they are now also going to Transmutation in Robe, South Australia who recycle the tags into products such as door knobs and bowls.
