Feed back on the draft South Hobart Good Neighbour Agreement
By the 27 August

Over the past year we have been developing a Good Neighbour Agreement with the City of Hobart landfill site at McRobies. The South Hobart Sustainable Community participated in the development of the Agreement in order to encourage a reduction of waste going to landfill. The Agreement also covers traffic, odour, dust and noise from the site. Please take a moment to read the short draft Good Neighbour Agreement, developed by MRA consulting and the City of Hobart and send us any comments you have. 

Do you think Council should start collecting food waste? Do you think they could help businesses recycle better? Do you have any ideas? If so, let us know - 

Garage sale trail

Garage sale trail
Saturday 22 October

Garage Sale Trail is Australia’s big day of GOOD STUFF with over 10,000 garage sales happening around the country. Now in its sixth year, Garage Sale Trail, is a free, council-powered day of garage sales that attracts over 300 000 bargain-loving shoppers nationally. With over 2 million pre-loved treasures expected to be up for sale.

The day exists to do more than help people sell their unwanted stuff and hone the skills of bargain hunters. The simple act of buying and selling at a garage sale does a whole lot of ‘good stuff’ beyond making extra cash and finding treasure. It’s a simple way to bring communities together, reuse and rethink the idea of what waste really is… while having an excuse to get dressed up, bake and barbeque.
