It's also great for you - it can reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose.
Resource Recovery & Education Program
The City of Greater Bendigo is actively working to divert municipal waste sent to landfill. We are doing this by regularly monitoring domestic waste and continuously educating the community on correct sorting of waste into the three-bin system to minimise contamination in kerbside general, recycle, and organics bins.
RREV aims to educate and make the residents aware of municipal waste management, resource recovery and litter reduction. It will offer volunteers with the opportunities to learn about correct sorting of waste into the three-bin system. It will also promote sustainable habits to minimise household waste and engage like-minded residents with shared vision to protect the environment from waste related issues.
If you have a passion for the environment and waste management, we have an activity based on your interest. We would encourage you to look at each role description and fill out the application form to become a part of something valuable.
Please note that this one application could support more than one role.
