As an incubator for innovation Hunter’s Hill Council was proud to today (12 November, 2020) be named Circular Economy Award Winner at the Keep Australia Beautiful NSW 2020 Sustainable Cities Awards.

In a record field of entries this year, the Council’s pilot project with the University of NSW’s (UNSW) Sustainable Materials Research and Technology (SMaRT) Centre took out the award.

This project promoting the circular economy as a measure to support sustainability and reduce waste to landfill is now on display at new library and community space The YARN.

Community members can drop in to see the bench tiles made from the old uniforms of local sports teams and schools.

A 3D printer, using e-waste filaments line (where waste plastic is made into filament for 3D printing) is coming soon.

People can also be part of the circular economy by donating their old textiles to The YARN’s waste wall to be processed into repurposed materials.
