Community Recycling Hub Launch

Perth City Farm is hosting an event to launch the opening of our new community recycling hub.

Perth City Farm is hosting an event to launch the opening of our new community recycling hub. This hub will service City of Perth residents as a drop off location for selected hazardous household items and become a vital component of our education programs at the farm.

Come along on the day and take part in some awesome workshops that will focus on reducing, reusing and recycling your waste! Kids workshops, cooking classes, woodwork and more! Stay tuned for the details
