Green clean your home

Hawkesbury City Council will present a workshop on Green Cleaning at Hawkesbury Central Library on Thursday, 26 April, from 10am to 12:30pm at 300 George Street, Windsor.

Half a LemonThis project is a NSW Environment Protection Authority, Waste Less, ‘Recycle More initiative’ funded by the waste levy.

The presentation will explain how to replace conventional cleaning products with the many natural ingredients kept in your home, the Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Mary Lyons-Buckett explained.

“Participants will learn how to make their own non-toxic cleaning products that are environmentally friendly and affordable,” Councillor Lyons-Buckett said.

“They will also receive information and recipes to make their own green cleaning products.

“Council has run composting workshops over many years now in various locations including Earthcare at the Hawkesbury Campus of Western Sydney University at Richmond,” the Mayor said.

“It’s great that the community is also able to attend these workshops at Hawkesbury Central Library in Windsor, as it is an excellent venue for the community.

“Library members also have access to a range of resources that cover topics on the environment and sustainability which are available to borrow.”

The Mayor added that waste education would continue to be a key priority for Council.

“With the continued success and local interest in these waste programs, Council will soon expand its waste workshops to feature a new ‘War on Waste’ series of workshops, so stay tuned for more to come.”

Bookings are essential through Eventbrite at www.hawkesburylibrary.eventbrite.com or call 4560 4460.
