Earth Carers in Action
Meredith worked with us as an intern on our social media campaign during Plastic Free July. She learnt of Earth Carers while doing a masters degree in California and luckily for us she was not only interested in marine debris and science communication but she was moving to Perth. Thanks Meredith for your work in spreading the Plastic Free July message and teaching us about Tweeting!
Mattresses can now be recycled at our transfer station in Shenton Park. To encourage residents to use this service, the WMRC have partially subsidised the price charged. It costs $15 (incl. GST) per mattress or ensemble and mattresses in any condition will be accepted. For details click here
. Mattresses are taken to Garbologie
in Bibra Lake for recycling.
Now at Bunnings Claremont, Bunnings Cottesloe, Claremont Aquatic Centre, Subiaco Lords
(temporarily closed), Subiaco Library and the UWA Guild Refectory. In only six months we have already
collected half a tonne of household batteries. These might otherwise have gone to landfill.
