Mahurangi Wastebusters has proudly been running zero waste events, repair cafes, waste minimisation education and training events in north Rodney since 2017.
With the help of the community and volunteers, we have now have an up-cycled learning hub at Lawrie Road and we've appointed Warkworth local, Rosie Hutchinson as our education officer.
Teaching kids how to reduce and recycle waste will be our initial focus, and as soon as our health and safety requirements have been finalised we'll confirm the learning programme and start taking bookings from early education centres and schools.
We will be posting a full schedule of events, workshops, demonstrations and activities soon. In the meantime, we're proud to be offering a FREE, 'waste-free' parenting workshop with Kate Meads at 7pm on Thursday, 27 February at the Old Wellsford Library. For more info, contact Trish Allen. If you can't make this one, Auckland Council is hosting another workshop at the Warkworth Town Hall at 6.30pm on Tuesday, 25 February - there is a $12.50 charge for this event.
We're always happy to talk to community groups and offer advice on reducing waste. Please email Trish Allen to make enquiries.
We Would Love You TO Visit US Soon!
