How can you get involved?
Alongside collecting lids and sorting them, there are loads of ways you can get involved.
Become a media warrior – Like our Facebook page and share our posts with your networks, share our website, even come in to the workshop and take some photos to share on your Insta! Getting the message out that we can do something about waste plastic is one of the MOST important jobs we have.
Volunteer – Volunteers carry out a range of really important tasks from creating collection points for schools/workplaces, washing, and sorting the lids, Saturday sorting sessions to helping with whatever project we are currently running in the workshop. Come along 9.30 Saturday mornings and help sort lids under the Banyan Trees in Nightcliff and meet the crew. (Kids Welcome!)
Become a Maker – Makers undertake orientation and training to use the workshop and equipment for their own projects, raw shred (at cost) and workshop time for development of their project. Makers also have opportunities to undertake contracted works for DPMS for pieces produced for our Community Partners. Click here for more information.
Become a Financial Supporter – Regular financial support allows us to cover Insurance and Maintenance expenses and helps secure the future of plastic recycling in the Northern Territory. Go to our gofundme page to make a one-off donation or if you prefer to deposit directly, contact us for our bank details.
Become a community Partner – Together we are all better! Contact Us to find out more.
