This is to praise and to thank the amazing people who hold the load of the Recycling Centre for all of us.
What a Place! Dova built this idea into a reality over many years before recycling was even fashionable, when the place was still the 'dump'.
When Dova retired she left an organization with established funding and running efficiently to serve us all.
Now with new leadership under Brian Pfeifle and Wendy Moore, and their crew, the Centre has gone to a whole new level. The place is so welcoming. The sorting is clear and communication is helpful. There is no feeling of blame or guilt rather a sense that we are working together to reduce trash on our beautiful island and ultimately our planet. The Free Store, (where shoplifting is encouraged), is so much fun thanks to all the brilliant women, some who have worked for years like Eleanor Harwood, and the current team, carrying on the tradition begun many years ago, to sort out books and clothes and all manner of 'stuff'.
Thanks to all of you. We see what you do and it is wonderful.
And now let's hear it for the true Road Warriors, Ian, Henry and Crew.
Thank you for all the years of true service.
