We are delighted to share that Span has been awarded funding through Victorian Government’s Recycling Victoria Communities Fund for our new RRR Hub.

The RRR Hub will enable the community to Repair, Reuse and Recycle more, lowering our environmental footprint and supporting social and environmental outcomes in Darebin and beyond.

We are busy getting set up to welcome waste materials for reuse and recycling both indoors and outdoors for your convenience. We have lots of ideas of what we will collect, but we want your input to help us shape this.
