Charity Bin Ch-ch-changes

Posted on: Monday, 18 December 2017 at 8:00:09 AM

WALGA is excited to launch a new Better Practice Guideline for Charity Bin Management with a behind-the-scenes tour at Good Samaritan Industries (GSI).

GSI, well known for their sunny yellow collection bins, are one of many charities in WA collecting unwanted textiles and household appliances to be reused. Charity bins provide a convenient community service and help divert significant tonnes of unwanted material from landfill every year.

Unfortunately, charity bins can be a target of illegal dumping, vandalism and graffiti, which causes community concern and costs charities over $300,000 per year to clean up. WALGA has developed this Guideline in collaboration with Local Government and charities to simplify processes for management of charity bins on Local Government controlled land.

The Guideline will be launched on Wednesday 28 February and will provide a fantastic opportunity for Elected Members and Officers to see behind the scenes at GSI.

See the attached event flyer for full details and how to register.
