What is the Recycling Hub?
The Boyup Brook Community Resource Centre first offered residents a recycling program in 2018 when it started collecting soft plastics, batteries, mobile phones and Nespresso coffee pods.
Since then the hub has grown to now accept 11 items that are collected into a self service, upcycled unit. Each item has its own section, so it is important that all items are clean and dry, sorted into the correct categories and that our clients are only dropping off items on our list.
The CRC proudly brings this recycling program to Boyup Brook, to help residents fight the War on Waste. We are very thankful to our supporters and look forward to adding to the hub in the future.
The Recycling Hub has its own Hashtag!
WAR ON WASTE NEWS
Thank you to the community for understanding the REDCYCLE situation. The CRC was forced to suspend the acceptance of soft plastics due to an inundation of this item and a lack of volunteers helping to cart a backlog of bags to a participating store.
We are pleased to advise that we had a number of community members who offered to take some of the items with them on their travels, as well as others who have indicated they will now take their own.
As a result, the CRC will resume accepting REDCYCLE plastics, however we do encourage you to transport your own plastics if possible, and call past the CRC to see if there is a bag or two you can take as well. Please be aware that the CRC may again suspend this service if the stockpile cannot be cleared.
Tidy Towns Winners
The Boyup Brook Community Resource Centre was awarded the State Category title for Environmental Education at the 2021 Tidy Towns Sustainable Communities award ceremony, held at Optus Stadium on November 26.
The award was given to the education program called the Boyup Brook War on Waste which includes CRC initiatives such as the Recycling Hub, Water Refill Station, the Recycling & Reuse Directory, social media campaign Sustainable Snippets and events such as the Plastic Free Morning Tea, Sustainability Workshops, Community Clean Ups and more.
BBCRC staff members, Centre Manager Jodi Nield, Projects Officer Sharon Lampard and Trainee Administration Officer Lori Mansell were present at the event, and were inspired by the many amazing sustainability and community building projects that are occurring across regional Western Australia.
