Re­cy­cling stall opens at mar­kets

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

OLD bat­ter­ies, light globes and smoke de­tec­tors can now be re­cy­cled at the Vic­to­ria Park Farm­ers Mar­kets.

Ear­lier this month, the Com­mu­nity Fo­rum Vic­to­ria Park opened a new stall to col­lect the re­cy­clables.

The stall will be at the mar­kets on the third Sun­day of ev­ery month from 8am to noon.

The idea was born when the group no­ticed a lack of lo­cal re­cy­cling sta­tions for globes, bat­ter­ies and more, and so de­cided to cre­ate a cen­tralised point to make re­cy­cling eas­ier.

The Com­mu­nity Fo­rum Vic­to­ria Park be­gan in 1954 as the Carlisle Ward Ratepay­ers and Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion Inc.

The group ad­vo­cate for im­proved poli­cies and ser­vices, mon­i­tor the per­for­mance of the coun­cil, and more.
