Lions Bin

Since introduction the battery and Tetra-Pak recycling at the Eastbourne library we have recycled over 50 kg of batteries through Bunnings and more recently dropped off over 280 Tetra Paks at Earthlink in Taita. Combining this with soft-plastics recycling at the Four Square supermarket and the Lions monthly waste bin (there’s a charge, and they recycle metals and electronics) we are doing well. Recycling (and rubbish) options are listed on this page.Read More →
