Re-using and recycling in the Huon Valley
Those of us who have been living in the Huon Valley for a long time can remember when the rubbish at Southbridge Tip was made to disappear by regularly bulldozing it into the Huon River.
Times have changed (thank goodness). Now there is a Waste Transfer Station at Southbridge with recycling options for glass, paper, plastic and metals.
But the what has really made a trip to the tip worthwhile is the Southbridge Re-Use Shop. Light and airy, and crammed full of everything you can think of, the Re-Use shop is now open seven days a week for your shopping convenience.
October 24th was the national Garage Sale Trail and to celebrate the Southbridge Re-Use Shop hosted a trash and treasure,as well craft and produce market.
The Southbridge Waste Transfer and Recycling Centre is located at 2899 Huon Hwy, Huonville TAS 7109
