Joondalup Weekender - - News -

MINDARIE Re­gional Coun­cil will hold an open day at its Ta­mala Park re­cy­cling and waste dis­posal fa­cil­ity this Satur­day. The Septem­ber 1 event will in­clude a re­open­ing of its re-use shop, where peo­ple can buy se­cond-hand fur­ni­ture and house­hold goods. “The shop has long been an im­por­tant part of the Ta­mala Park fa­cil­ity,” ed­u­ca­tion man­ager Ge­off Atkin­son said. “(It’s) a way for the com­mu­nity to pre­vent good ser­vice­able items, valu­able re­sources, from go­ing to land­fill and also be of com­mu­nity ben­e­fit be­ing a source of rea­son­ably priced se­cond-hand goods. “Its pop­u­lar­ity has grown in re­cent times, en­cour­ag­ing the MRC to dou­ble the size of the shop and give it a makeover.” Mr Atkin­son said the shop now had bet­ter pro­tec­tion from the weather and a larger range of items for sale, as well as ex­tended open­ing times, seven days a week from 9am to 4pm. The free event will in­clude tours, en­ter­tain­ment, face­paint­ing, dis­plays, junk art, talks and work­shops between 10am and 3pm at 1700 Marmion Av­enue. There will also be a sausage siz­zle, gelato and cof­fee, with free cof­fee of­fered to those who bring their own cup. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.mrc.wa.gov.au.
