IMPACT Community Services staff at Council's Material Recovery Facility have been recognised for their dedication and years of service as part of National Recycling Week.
IMPACT board chair Leanne Rudd, Bundaberg Regional Council Waste and Recyling portfolio spokesperson Cr Tanya McLoughlin and Member for Bundaberg Tom Smith attended the recent awards ceremony where three employees were commended for their efforts.
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.
The three employees were congratulated for their hard work which has resulted in tonnes of containers sorted and recycled, rather than ending up in landfill or littered throughout the environment.
Impact staff recognised during National Recycling Week
While National Recycling Week has begun, it's business as usual for the passionate staff at the recycling facility whose work is essential to ensuring Bundaberg is tidy.
IMPACT employs 27 workers with disabilities under the Australian Government's Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE).
The team 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 Drive.
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.
