Did you know that your Bread Tags can help someone in need access a Wheelchair? They certainly can!
November 8th-14th is National Recycling Week, what better reason is there to get recycling??
Have you wondered how you can make good use of those plastic bread tags that keep piling up at home or at your workplace? Well here is the answer. Woodford Community House has registered as a collection point for the Aussie Bread Tags for Wheelchairs program.
Obviously, you will find bread tags on your bread products, but be on the look out for them used on other products too, like the Odd Bunch fruit and vegetables, potatoes, carrots and the like.
You can deliver your tag collection to the house at 50 Archer Street, Woodford. There is a collection bin on our front porch. Or, if you have a large collection you can leave it on the front porch if no one is at the house at the time you visit.
It is also helpful if you sort your bread tags into the difference colours, as this is part of the recycling process. We will be hosting a sorting day, once a month, at the house. If you have a couple of hours free and can come and have a coffee and help sort the tags, that would be awesome. Keep an eye on our Facebook page of the sorting days, or phone 5404 6139.
What happens next:Well after we have a sizable collection, one of our volunteers will take the tags to the Brisbane collection point, they are then sent to Robe, South Australia for recycling.
Mary Honeybun started Bread Tags for Wheelchairs in South Africa in 2006. Late 2018 there was sufficient interest and support across Australia to set up a national collection network. You can find out more by clicking on this link.
