Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle - Lunchtime Interlude

Published: Monday, 27 August 2018 at 9:00:00 AM

Come and Learn All About Recycling- A Lunchtime Interlude.
Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

When we create waste and throw it away into landfills, we not only fill up the land, but also pollute the air and soil. Harmful gases and toxic chemicals are produced which are released into the atmosphere as well as seeped into the soil. By reducing the volume of waste we produce, we can also reduce the amount of pollution released. We can reduce waste by bringing reusable shopping bags to the store, selecting products with the least amount of packaging, repairing items instead of replacing them and minimizing the disposable products we use.

This talk will provide the most up-to-date information about waste management in Perth’s Eastern Region, as well as tips to avoid waste, and how residents can easily manage their household waste and recycling. The talk will include:
• Waste generation facts;
• The impact of plastic pollution;
• Household Hazardous waste;
• Options for recycling and disposal in the region; and
• Changing habits around the home
