We’re excited to share with you that our July Drive for Goods was a huge success we have extended the service and are now open every Friday and Saturday afternoon! We had over 100 givers come through our contactless declutter drive-through at our Morningside Circular Economy Precinct.
Locals were thrilled to have a space to drop-off items they had decluttered during lockdown, especially since kerbside collection has currently been paused. Many businesses also came through with office furniture and goods they know longer needed.
So many were eager to learn about the work we do and wanted to get involved, very supportive of a Precinct like this in their local area, with several people joining the WBGS family as volunteers as volunteers.
Over 25% came through and dropped off goods multiple times and found the service easy and seamless, loving the fact that they could bring virtually anything to us and we would give it a 2nd, third or even fourth life.
Several stayed to see our range of circular goods that had been through our resource recovery phases, encouraged to see a Queensland bred business tackling the waste challenge on the world’s to do list.
Our goods for good program relies on contributions of dormant goods from households and businesses. These contributions enable us to thrive and grow and create tangible environmental and societal impact. As a profit-for-purpose business we specialise in resource recovery, retail returns, unused goods (aka dormant goods) and giving new life to them via re-commerce, renewing, repurposing and recycling.
The drive was such as a success that we have kept the service open. If you’re decluttering, downsizing or refurbishing please register to give us your goods. See you at our precinct soon!
