Make bucks and save the planet at Narrogin’s Containers For Change depot
Great Southern Waste Disposal director Kevin Timms has issued a call to the public to support Narrogin’s Containers For Change depot.
In the four days that the depot had been running when the Observer spoke to him Mr Timms said it had taken about 20,150 drink containers, but that was not enough.
“We really want to encourage people to bring their drink containers to the depot in order to keep it going so that Narrogin doesn’t lose its container deposit point,” he said.
“If it’s not being utilised enough there is a possibility it may close.
“At the moment, it’s good to see people recycling these containers and getting them off the streets and into the container deposit, but we’d like to see a lot more of them, and new people too, rather just the same people coming each time.”
Mr Timms said the program had been slow in taking off in Narrogin. He wanted to remind the public it was there.
“We just want to remind the public of Narrogin and surrounding districts that they can come to 21 Graham Road, bring all the eligible drink containers they want, and and receive 10¢ back for each item,” he said.
The Great Southern Waste Disposal refund depot is open from 8am-noon on Saturdays and Wednesdays.
