recycle right at perth royal show 2016

The 2016 Perth Royal Show saw Recycle Right make a return to Trevor Cochrane’s Waterwise Garden from the 24th of September to the 1st of October. This year we were located in an awesome display that featured a vertical pallet garden and decking area, aluminium and plastic bales, furniture and items made from recycled plastic and cans as well as bench seats and tables made from timber collected at the SMRC’s Green Waste Facility.

Recycle Right team members alongside staff from our member councils and volunteers from the Waste Recycling Education Network (WREN), engaged in a number of different activities including origami seed pot making, creating fridge magnets out of old milk bottle lids, and provided and collected information about all things waste and recycling.

The mixed weather didn’t scare off visitors and the Waterwise Garden display saw in excess of 247,000 visitors throughout the course of the show.

In addition to the display in the Waterwise Garden, the SMRC contributed at the ‘is plastic fantastic?’ stand; a collaboration with the other metro regional councils to provide collaborative information about sustainability.
