Find out about what can be recycled, including batteries and e-waste, at Bunnings Noosaville between 8am and 4pm on Saturday, November 18.

Free e-waste drop-off, recycling information sessions plus a free family movie night are among the events to round out Council’s National Recycling Week festivities, this weekend.

Council will screen Finding Dory from 6.30pm at Noosaville Lions Park on Friday, November 17.

“Bring the kids along from 5pm to take part in recycled art workshops, and go into the draw to win a raised garden bed and other environmental goodies” says Council’s Waste Education Officer Emma Menzies.

For an in-depth look at recycling – including advice on what can and can’t be recycled – Council will host information sessions at Bunnings Noosaville between 8am and 4pm on Saturday, November 18.

“This is a great opportunity to have your questions answered. If you’re unsure about whether a particular item can or can’t be recycled, come along and find out,” Ms Menzies said.

“Residents can also take advantage of free e-waste recycling and household batteries at Bunnings Noosaville on Saturday. Simply bring along your old televisions, DVD players, laptops, printers and other old or unwanted office and audio-visual equipment for recycling.

“Used electronic equipment contains finite resources such as copper, aluminium, nickel and zinc. Recycling your e-waste ensures these resources are reused,” Ms Menzies said.

Last year residents dropped off around four tonnes of e-waste over the two days.

“That’s four tonnes of material diverted from landfill, which is a great result. People can drop off their e-waste and batteries at the transfer stations for free throughout the year.” Ms Menzies said.

Another Woman’s Closet, from 8am to 11.30am Sunday at Noosa Leisure Centre, 9 Wallace Drive Noosaville, is a sustainable way to stay in fashion.

“The fashion industry is responsible for a significant amount of waste each year, as trends come and go. Another Woman’s Closet is a great way buy and sell good quality pre-loved clothes while helping to reduce the stream of clothing heading to landfill,” Ms Menzies said.
