Bower Reuse & Repair Centre marks 15 years

The Bower Reuse and Repair Centre will not only celebrate its 15th anniversary this Saturday but also the auction of ‘Tiny’, a 2m by 2.5m prototype home.

I look forward to opening the event, which marks the first time an Australian recycling centre will have hosted a home auction.

It is great to see community organisations in the Inner West leading the way with creative projects.

The Bower is well-known for its ability to combine sustainability with innovation.

It also plays an important role in raising awareness in the community on issues such as landfill and recycling.

For the past 15 years the Bower has worked hard to divert household goods, building material, bikes and electronic appliances from landfill.

The Bower’s commitment to environmental sustainability in the Inner West is exemplary.

Tomorrow’s 15th anniversary celebration is the perfect time to recognise the Bower’s hard work and dedication.

I congratulate the Bower Reuse and Repair Centre on their success and wish them the best for future projects.
