Opening of Cowra Community recycling Centre
Opening of Cowra Community recycling Centre

The new Community Recycling Centre (CRC) at Cowra is open. This means local residents can now drop off any of those awkward household items including old paint, gas bottles, motor oils, fluoro lights, fire extinguishers, smoke detectors and batteries.

It’s free to drop off these items and everything is really clearly marked at the centre. The waste items will then be safely disposed of or recycled. For example the lead, acid and plastic in lead acid batteries are recovered and recycled, keeping these materials out of our landfill.

The CRC is located on Glen Logan Road. For more information on opening hours visit www.cowracouncil.com.au

This facility is funded by the NSW waste levy via the EPA’s Waste Less, Recycle More initiative.

The full 2016 Waste to Art Catalogue can be viewed here. The aim is to challenge peoples’ perceptions about ‘rubbish’ and to celebrate the reuse and recycling of waste through arts and crafts. Waste to Art provides an innovative approach to waste education, invites schools and community groups to take up the challenge and create a new life for materials that would otherwise have been thrown away.

2015/16 Waste to Art Overall Winner

Congratulations to our 2015/16 Waste to Art Overall Winner, Jack Fox of Condobolin.

2016 Waste to Art Overall Winner " “Alzheimer’s”
2016 Waste to Art Overall Winner ” “Alzheimer’s”

Jacks’ amazing work is titled “Alzheimer’s”. It won the category for High School 3D and then went on to take out the overall winners prize.  Jack describes his work as; “Hast du einen vogel”? is a German expression meaning ‘Are you crazy? or more literally ‘Do you have a bird in your brain’?. My work is a physical manifestation of this as it relates to, and explores the process and memory loss, as the bird flies away with the old
mans brain.
