WAR ON WASTE - Boyup Brook
During December, the CRC has sent off four more boxes of Nespresso Pods and taken a bucket load of household batteries to Battery World, Bunbury for recycling.
Now there are two more items that are being collected by the CRC.
Bread tags come in many shapes, sizes and colours. Made of High Impact Polystyrene they have a good recycling value. It takes 200kg of tags to bring in enough money to buy one wheelchair. Bread tags for wheelchairs has been recycling bread tags in South Africa since 2006 and Australia is now collecting them too! So, save your plastic bread tags, drop them in to the CRC’s collection jar and help to fund more wheelchairs. Collecting bread tags, even broken ones, makes a difference to our environment too as they are recycled into seedling trays, picture frames, coat hangers and other items. http://www.breadtagsforwheelchairs.co.za
Plastic Bottle Lids are also wanted for a community arts project. Milk bottles, juice bottles or soft drinks, any colour. Please just rinse them clean and drop them into the collection tub.

CRC FUNDING REINSTATED
The State Government has announced that the funding to WA Community Resource Centres will be reinstated in full to the tune of $13 million per year. This is a welcomed decision after months of uncertainty for the Network and regional communities who were facing a 40% annual cut.

Thank you for supporting your CRC!
A big thank you to those who wrote letters of support, sent postcards and displayed our bumper stickers. The outpouring of support received by the network was incredible, and surely helped the state government come to this decision.
