The tremendous work done by the IMPACT Community Service staff at the Material Recovery Facility has been praised by fellow employees, IMPACT’s board chair Leanne Rudd, Bundaberg Regional Council Cr Tanya McLoughlin and Member for Bundaberg Tom Smith during a staff award presentation.
Three employees in particular were commended for their long service and dedication at the recycling facility: Brendan Stubbs, Warren Male and Nathan Last.
Their hard work, alongside their colleagues, has resulted in tonnes of containers sorted and recycled rather than ending up in landfill or littered throughout the environment.
While today marks the start of National Recycling Week, it's business as usual for our team at the recycling facility.
With Bundaberg’s population continuing to grow, their work was essential to ensuring Bundaberg is tidy.
IMPACT employs about 27 workers with disabilities under the Australian Government's Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE) to sort through all of the waste from council's yellow-top bins.
The MRF is owned by Bundaberg Regional Council and managed by IMPACT Community Services at 78 University Dr.
There is also a refund point which lets people get a 10 cent refund for each eligible container returned as part of the Containers for Change scheme.
Brendan Stubbs was recognised for 10-years-service, Warren Male was recognised for 15-years-service and Nathan Last was recognised for 20-years-service.
