Large focus on waste

By Tatura Guardian

Sustainability group Transition Tatura has big plans for their town this year.

A large focus on waste will mean numerous events and plans enable Tatura to be even more successful in their environmental efforts.

On Saturday, May 19, the group will be continuing its road clean-up efforts, starting at the Whim Inn corner on the roundabout of Hogan St and Dhurringile Rd.

Held twice a year, the group has been working on this patch of road for four to five years.

‘‘We encourage everyone to come along,’’ Transition Tatura member Ross Musolino said.

The cleaning begins at 9am and usually finishes around noon.

For legal reasons, all volunteers must be above 16 years of age.

The film festival has been locked in on Saturday, August 25, for the fifth year in a row.

Held at The Gallery Cafe on Hogan St, the topic for the films will be waste related.

The group also will be creating flyers to help the community learn how to be more sustainable while saving money at the same time.

‘‘Hopefully we can open some people’s eyes up to the possibilities,’’ Mr Musolino said.

The Practical Living Seminars are yet to be confirmed, but will be going ahead this year, providing take-home messages for all who attend.

The group is also looking into battery recycling and the possibility of setting up a waste transfer station in town.
