People, Resources, Activities, Impact

Over the course of two days we’ll:

  • We’ll talk over how to get the best from ourselves and our people. We’ll explore ways to get messages out to our customers and communities.
  • We’ll look at systems for recording what happens on site and keeping track of our money.
  • We’ll look at the main things we do at community recovery centres and the tools we use to get them done safely.
  • We’ll explore the community enterprise business model we use to fund our work.

The cost for the two days is $400 excl GST per attendee for community group participants and $700 excl GST per attendee for commercial/council attendees.

The project is generously supported by the Ministry for the Environment’s Waste Minimisation Fund, and Auckland Council allowing us to offer subsidies to community groups, in support of the building of a strong community resource recovery sector.
