Workshops and a free outdoor movie screening are among the highlights of Council’s upcoming National Recycling Week program.

Residents can learn how to upcycle old clothing to give it a new lease on life and spare it from landfill.

“Bring along a few natural fibre clothes that you no longer wear, and transform them into something new and fashionable under the tutelage of Jane Milburn,” Waste Education Officer Emma Menzies said.

Residents can learn to make beeswax wraps to replace cling wrap.

“Beeswax wraps are a great alternative to cling film, they are fun to make and can be used again and again,” Ms Menzies said.

For the kids, there’s a free outdoor movie night on Friday, November 15, at Noosaville Lions Park.

“Arrive from 5pm so the kids can take part in a free kids junk music workshop, prior to the film – Incredibles 2.”

Sell or purchase good quality pre-loved women’s clothing at the November 17 preloved clothing market.

“Buying preloved clothing is a great way to get your fashion fix without contributing to the waste created by the fashion industry each year,” Ms Menzies said.

National Recycling Week – November 11 to 17 – is also an ideal time to drop off e-waste for recycling, Ms Menzies said.

“E-waste is electronic waste - anything that has a plug or a battery. It includes computer and audio visual equipment such as old laptops, TVs, game consoles, stereos and CD players. If it’s been sitting broken in the cupboard, recycle it. It’s free to drop it off at the Eumundi Noosa Road landfill all year round. For National Recycling Week, you can drop off e-waste for free at Bunnings Noosaville, between 8am and 4pm on Saturday, November 16.”

Recycling helps conserve landfill space and meet waste reduction targets set by the State.

“Everyone can help by making small changes at home. Think about the products you are purchasing, say no to excessive packaging, compost your food waste, buy better quality when you do buy something, and buy less,” Ms Menzies said.

“Check out the National Recycling Week activities to learn what you can do today to reduce your waste.”
