Friday 28 October 2005 Open Day unravels the mystery of recycling
Not quite sure what you can and can't put in your yellow recycling bin? Or maybe you're wondering what happens to your recycled waste once it leaves your kerbside?
The mystery of recycling will be unravelled at Caloundra City's Waste Services Open Day on Thursday November 7 as part of National Recycling Week celebrations.
Caloundra City Mayor Don Aldous said with a rapidly increasing population it is important that everyone in the City embraces recycling.
"There is already immense pressure on our waste facilities and every bit the community can do to reduce, reuse and recycle will help minimise the impact on our land resources, the environment and the visual amenity of the City," Cr Aldous said.
"This Open Day is a tremendous opportunity for the City's residents to see first-hand the difference they can make by recycling and the benefits to the community as a whole."
The Open Day, to be held at the Beerwah Resource Recovery Centre, Roberts Rd Beerwah, will run between 11am and 1pm.
Entry is free with activities and entertainment to include a sausage sizzle, recycling workshop, stalls, tours of the recycle markets and the Resource Recovery Centre and a Cleanaway presentation including the rules of recycling.
