Watch your Waste with the Library

Want to do more recycling, reduce contamination, and save $$$?

Over the past few years waste management has become a massive issue in our communities.

Through our heightened environmental awareness, community programs, garbage disposal costs and popular media there is a growing sense of urgency in our communities that something must be done about the war on waste.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to reduce your waste by half?  Or recycle items you would normally throw out?  For example, instead of binning all of your food scraps, it could feed a worm farm in your garden. Or take your clean egg cartons to a kindy or pre-school for craft activities. In fact there are so many ways we can recycle our rubbish that sometimes it is difficult to know exactly where to start.

Shire of Dardanup Library Services can help there.
