Lids sorting

Join our Clean Up Australia Day 2024 event this February as we combine our Clean Up activities with our monthly Community Day. Not only a chance to sort some plastic lids and have some fun with our injection machine. You have the chance to make a positive impact on the environment by helping us clean up cloase to home, 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 participating in Clean Up Australia Day activities, then dive into the exciting world of lids. 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 Community 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 Community Day this February, and let’s sort lids, make a positive impact, and have a memorable time together.
