Operating a Sustainable Community Recycling Enterprise

Monday April 24 2021

In 2007 “A Guide to Starting a Recycling Venture in your Community” was published with the aim of encouraging communities throughout Australia to establish similar enterprises to one operating in Eaglehawk, Victoria.
While there are over 70 sites around Australia operating community recycling/re-use enterprises there are still thousands of Australian jobseekers looking for work.

Savings in fees and care for the environment motivate people to use the Eaglehawk Recycle Shop’s Recovery Centre rather than the Eaglehawk landfill.

The Centre, which has been operating for 23 years at the entrance of the landfill, also provides jobs and a cheap location for second hand materials and products to be purchased.
