Trailer to spread green message

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

THE City of Swan has launched its $23,000 Mo­bile En­vi­ron­men­tal Aware­ness unit to co­in­cide with Earth Day.

The City launched the unit at Ellen Stir­ling Pri­mary School last week dur­ing the school’s Earth Day cel­e­bra­tions.

The unit, which was de­signed and built in-house at the City of Swan de­pot, took about three months to build.

It will be taken to schools, shop­ping cen­tres and com­mu­nity events to en­cour­age sus­tain­abil­ity and aware­ness.

Mayor Mick Wainwright said the trailer would help ed­u­cate peo­ple.

“This trailer is a great tool for the City and al­lows us to help ed­u­cate young peo­ple about the ben­e­fits of re­cy­cling and liv­ing sus­tain­ably,” he said.

“The fact that it is mo­bile means we can reach more young peo­ple at more places, so it will re­ally help the City spread the message fur­ther.” en­vi­ron­men­tal
