Council offers residents of the Shire a number of free Waste Wise Living workshops to help with environmentally friendly practices in the home.
Workshops are only available to Shire residents. Due to the popularity of these workshops, bookings will only be accepted three weeks prior to the workshop date. Don’t worry if you miss out, as workshops are held every few months.
Workshops are not suitable for children under the age of 10 years.
Out of sight, out of mind? If you have ever wondered what happens to the material from your bins once it has been collected and taken away from your kerbside. Then come along and visit the recycling and waste management facilities on a guided tour.
