Find your trea­sure in the trash

Central Queensland News - - NEWS -

FIND your trea­sure this week­end at the Emer­ald Tip Shop. In a bid to en­cour­age the re­cy­cling and reusing of pre-loved goods, a Spring Clean event will be held, of­fer­ing ‘all you can carry’ for $20.

Shop­pers must be able to phys­i­cally carry their bun­dle out the gate to be el­i­gi­ble for the deal.

Emer­ald Tip Shop owner op­er­a­tor Kim Tomp­son said through the event, she would love to start a com­mu­nity con­ver­sa­tion around “re­duc­ing waste, reusing re­sources and re­cy­cling all we can for a greener fu­ture”.

“These days have been quite pop­u­lar in the past so I’m go­ing to have an in­for­ma­tion-type stand with ideas on how, as a wider com­mu­nity, we can re­duce, re­use and re­cy­cle, why we need to and how we can re­duce costs as­so­ci­ated with re­gional waste,” she said.

Ms Tomp­son will also pro­vide a white­board and mark­ers for mem­bers of the public to add their own sug­ges­tions on ways to re­duce waste and re­cy­cle.

Held at the Emer­ald Tip Shop on Satur­day, Septem­ber 15, a sausage siz­zle will also be held, with pro­ceeds go­ing to the Min­ers Com­mon Mu­seum, Arts and Cul­tural Cen­tre at Ruby­vale.
