Keep Wellsford Beautiful founder Jerusha Tucker has been appointed as a zero waste facilitator for Wellsford Wastebusters, which runs the community refuse and recycling centre.
Jerusha wants to see more residents using the Rustybrook Road site and a significant reduction in the amount of waste going to landfill.
“I would love to see the community using the secondhand shop at Rustybrook Road more,” she says. “By reusing things, we can create a wonderful sense of community and help those in need at the same time. After all, one person’s trash, is another’s treasure.”
Wellsford Wastebusters is currently open from 10am to 2pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays, though it is hoped to increase those hours as demand increases.
