More sparks for the War on Waste at Samford Commons

Ellena at Samford Commons organised a big E Waste program in the wonderful Samford Valley in the new year. Many large bins of electrical waste were deposited by Samford residents for repair, re-use, recycling and repurposing.

This is in addition to the partnership with Mandy at Luvaberry Farm where they sell frozen glut fruit which would otherwise have gone to landfill. About 2 tonnes of fruit already sold to locals and other outstations are popping up. Great work Ellena!
