This weekend we're taking up an exciting opportunity!

Tune in to "Educating for Social Change" on Access Radio (106.1FM) on Sunday 22 September from 4 - 5pm, to hear two of our members, David and Jane, and Daryl from Island Bay Toastmasters, talk about what Toastmasters is, what we do and what we get out of it.

We got the chance to do this as a result of some successful promotional visits with the students and teachers at the English Teaching Colleges in Wellington and Lower Hutt. The Toastmasters who took part had a great time meeting everyone and it was a real bonus to get the radio interview.

Hi, my name is Sophie. I am a Year 12 student at Wellington East Girls College. As part of my Outdoor Education sustainability project, I signed up as a TerraCycle drop off location.

Thank you so much to everyone who has dropped off recycling. It does prove that every little bit counts. So far we have diverted over 10kgs of waste from landfill and earned over $20 for Predator Free Lyall Bay and Melrose.

I am sad to say Fonterra will no longer be recycling their yoghurt pouches next school term. So please drop off those clean pouches before October 14th (first day of term 4). The Collective yoghurt brand will still be recycling their own brand ONLY.

In exciting news however we have two new recycling schemes:
- BIC is offering to recycle any brand plastic pens, mechanical pencils, correction fluid and tape containers and markers (felts, highlighters, permanent and whiteboard). I need to ship these by the carton full so please ask your schools and workplaces.
- ZURU Bunch O Balloons. All used balloons and plastic stems and packaging that comes with them.

I am still collecting these waste streams too:
- Plastic toothbrushes (Please hot wash and dry these for hygiene reasons)
- Empty toothpaste tubes
- Empty dental floss containers
- Any cardboard packaging that the above items came in
- Any brand coffee pods
- Empty Collective brand ONLY yoghurt pouches/suckies and caps (Please cut the bottoms open and wash and dry)
- Glad wrap (Clean and dry)
- Glad zip lock bags (Washed and dried)
- Glad storage containers (Washed and dried also includes microwaveable takeaway containers that have the number 5 recycling symbol)

Please deliver items for recycling to 91a Freyberg Street. If no one is home items can be left in the blue recycling bin just inside our gate.

Since this recycling initiative attracts a small amount of money I will be donating this directly to Predator Free Lyall Bay and Melrose group to help buy more traps and tunnels to hopefully see Lyall Bay become predator-free and bring back the birdlife such as Kereru and Kaka.
