The North Burnett Regional Council have partnered with the Biggenden PCYC Emergency Service Cadets in an effort to fundraise and divert waste from landfill.
An unused steel frame has been repurposed with assistance from local business, Biggenden Engineering, into a container recycling cage housed at the Biggenden Waste Family for customer to recycle their cans and bottles.
100% of the proceeds from donated recyclables are going towards the Biggenden PCYC Emergency Service Cadets, through the successful Container’s For Change program.
The fundraising through donated recyclables have given them the opportunity to do extra training and go on special excursions.
How do we donate our eligible containers to the PCYC Emergency Service Cadets?
Step 1 – Stop of the Biggenden Site Office for a vehicle inspection
Step 2 – Our Waste Attendant will direct you to the container drop off point.
Step 3 – Plastics and Cans can be placed in the opening on the cage. Glass bottles are to be stacked in the crates provided or boxes dropped at the front of the cage (we can look after the glass for you to avoid breakages).
Recyclables include cans, glass bottles and plastic that have the 10c label. Milk bottles, wine bottles, jam jars and tins cannot be taken. Please follow directions of waste staff to ensure safety onsite.
Please note that Biggenden Waste Facility is a container drop off point and is not a registered container refund point.
