As the Re-think site grows we will be adding each council around Australia’s eco-waste news, encourage your council to get involved. Check out NSW Northern Rivers’ Waste’s Circular Cafes program engaging Café’s around the region to dramatically reduce their waste and put lots of it to good use
“North East Waste is delighted to be a part of the online Re-think community. We see this as a platform that will inspire real change, make connections and build a knowledge base around Circular Economy initiatives”
For helping us to spread the word about how we can all process our waste more sustainably, we have sent an invitation to join Re-think to your local council.
Every council manages their waste differently. Knowing how to process your waste well where you live will help your council to recycle and process what you throw away most sustainably.
