Sick of seeing waste in your community? Got good ideas for getting resources out of landfill, and into new products? Love to see trash become treasure?
Rockhampton Regional Council and CQUniversity want to hear from you!
RRC and CQU are progressing a partnership to develop an Upcycle Village at the Lakes Creek Road Waste Management Facility.
On Wednesday 8 September, you can join a big-thinking workshop to capture ideas for recycling and upcycling businesses that reduce waste in the Rockhampton Region, then work with expert facilitators to shape a viable business model.
Participants who want to progress their idea can access post-workshop support to complete an EOI to develop an Upcycle Village business.
This free and interactive session is 10am to 2pm at Rockhampton Smart Hub.
Whether you’re a home composter wanting to scale up, a worker with ideas for waste reduction in your industry, or just passionate about sustainability, come and connect with other passionate locals, and help Rockhampton Region move towards a zero waste and circular economy.
This initiative was funded by the Queensland Government through QSEC's Reset and Recovery Project.
