Talkin' Trash

Friday, 19 November 2021

Who knew waste could take up a whole business breakfast agenda. WE DID!

We are talkin' trash with our business community on the backend of National Recycling Week 2021 and recently adopted Scenic Rim Waste Management and Resource Recovery Strategy 2021-2026.

We invite you to come learn about waste; it really is everyone's business, and understand that ultimately, there is no such thing as waste, just resources waiting to be transformed.

The morning's program will include a panel of refuse enthusiasts who make waste their business. Joining facilitator, Emma Thomson, (Council's Waste Coordinator) on ths stage will be:

  • Kate Creasey and Matthew Whalley - Olive View Estate
  • Innes and Tracey Larkin - Mt Barney Lodge
  • David Kassulke - AJ Bush
  • Marion Sawyers and Stuart - Arthy Rural
  • Toni-Maree Earsman - Terra Firma Fertilizer
  • Special guest: Ronni Kahn AO - social entrepreneur and founder of food rescue charity, OzHarvest.
