It’s National Recycling Week!
Now while I’m sure you all recycle all the time already, if you want to know some more about recycling, or if you just want to see some pieces of art by the community, then this info may interest you.
National Recycling Week runs from Monday 11 to Sunday 17 November and to celebrate, ACT NOWaste ran an art competition for preschool to college-aged students to promote recycling.
“The winning artworks are on display this week at Westfield Woden near the Coffee Club on level 1,” Acting Director of ACT NOWaste, David Roberts said.
“We were delighted with the quality and number of entries received. Students have truly embraced the recycling message and I think the public will be impressed with at their creativity.”
Education staff from ACT NOWaste are also running two information stalls in shopping centres across Canberra this week to show people what they can do to reuse and recycle.
“We have a large interactive display which allows people to check each room of their house and discover what reuse and recycle options are available for particular household items. This display has proved to be a popular way of engaging with young and old alike,” Mr Roberts said.
“Many of the solutions might surprise people. For instance people can drop-off batteries for recycling at Aldi supermarkets and Battery World stores. People can also dispose of unused household chemicals and even cooking oil for free at both Mugga and Mitchell resource Management Centres.”
The display stalls are at:
— Cooleman Court shopping centre: 10 am to 2 pm Wednesday 13 November 2013
— Kippax shopping centre: 10 am to 2 pm Thursday 14 November 2013
