War on Waste Update: A big thank you to Foodworks Supermarket and the Cabonne Council/HACC Office in Canowindra who host the CWA Soft Plastic collection bins. The CWA have had less contamination in the bins since the beginning of the year, so there is less work for the volunteer collectors. Remember only plastic that scrunches into a ball can go into these bins. For example: cling wrap and plastic Australia Post satchels. Check out the Redcycle webpage for more information at www.redcycle.net.au/what-to-redcycle/ The CWA in Canowindra are also starting to collect plastic bottle lids and bread tags, by recycling these items it keeps them out of landfill and gives them another useful life!
