Community groups are turning trash into cash with Council's recycling trailer

Wagga Wagga City Council is helping community groups with a can-do attitude turn their trash into cash.

With the popularity of the Return and Earn container deposit scheme, Council’s Community Cash 4 Cans recycling trailer (CC4C) has been used by various sport clubs, churches and school groups since it was launched in April.

The trailer is available for community groups to use at local events and easily collect eligible drink containers – with bookings already received for next year.

Council created the trailer to make it easy for the community to raise money, while making sure single-use drink containers are recycled and not going to landfill or ending up as litter.

The trailer can hold between 2500 and 3000 cans and bottles, which can be worth hundreds of dollars for your local group or club.

Any interested sporting, community and school groups wanting to use the CC4C trailer can simply book it online and arrange to pick it up. For more information, visit wagga.nsw.gov.au/cc4c. There is no cost for using the recycling trailer.
