E-Waste Success

Last Saturday’s E-Waste collection day proved such a success, that we have already begun to plan for the next one! There was a steady stream of people doing their bit for the environment and getting rid of unwanted or superseded computer equipment. As I said we’ll definitely organise another e-waste day and I’ll give everyone plenty of prior notice. Just out of interest I pulled out how much household clean up waste we collected last year (following a request from the Sydney Morning Herald on-line people) and found that with our regular clean ups so far we have picked up around 16,000 tonnes of waste (and that’s in additional to the weekly garbage collections). The more of the collected waste that we can reuse or recycle the better it is for the community and our environment.
