Lids sorting

Join our Open Day this October for a few hours of plastic lids sorting. Not only will you have the chance to make a positive impact on the environment, but you’ll also have a great time connecting with like-minded individuals who share your passion for sustainability.

We’ll kick off the day by diving into the exciting world of lids sorting and washing, where you’ll learn valuable techniques from our experienced team. As we come together to tackle this important task, you’ll be amazed at the collective power we have to make a difference.

After a productive morning, we’ll take a well-deserved break and indulge in a delicious BBQ lunch. This will be the perfect opportunity to relax, socialise, and exchange inspiring stories with fellow participants.

During our last Open Day, we achieved remarkable results, sorting over 100kg of plastic lids with the unwavering support of our dedicated volunteers and the innovative Rethink Recycling Team. Together, we are proving that every small action counts and that we can create a sustainable future for generations to come.

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to be a part of something truly meaningful. Mark your calendars for our Open Day this October, and let’s sort lids, make a positive impact, and have a memorable time together.
