A week of events with Xtreme

We are proud to be able to share a bunch of awesome events coming up over the next few weeks.

Saturday 20th March is MAUI DOLPHIN DAY 12-4pm at Papahua Domain. Stalls, food, music, and the famous Recycled Raft Race! We love this wonderful community day out. Our Plastic Free Raglan team will be joining the line up of environmental projects with their stall of games and interesting things they found in our community street bins!

Wednesday 24th March We have our first TRADIE BREAKFAST WORKSHOP. This is continuing the conversation about Construction and Demolition waste and we are so pleased to have Ian Mayes Eco Building adviser sharing practical steps on how to reduce waste on site. Come join us at Orca 7-8am RSVP on the Facebook event here. 

Wednesday 24th MarchZero Waste Network and our composting leader Liz are hosting a COMPOSTING WORKSHOP DAY While this event is fully booked up, we are stoked to share an example of how folks around Aotearoa are coming to Xtreme to learn about our organics processing. Diverting foodwaste from landfill is super important and on the radar for many at a national and international level.

Thursday 25th March is a late night at Xtreme with our CLOSING THE LOOP CIRCULAR ECONOMY EVENING. We are glad to partner with Zero Waste Network to host this event hearing from some awesome people in the Waikato who love to move things in circles. Jess from Dreamview, Bruno & Matt from Workshop Brewing Co, Owen from Convex Innovate Plastics AND Tania from Go Eco in Hamilton.  facebook RSVP here or on eventbrite here!

Saturday 27th March we are opening up our organics site for a HOT COMPOST HAPPY HOUR of sorts. Be there at 3pm for an opportunity to take a closer look around our organics yard and check out the big HCU (Horizontal Composting Unit). Ask our organics yard team any questions about the process, the bugs, the heat, the magic that turns our community’s greenwaste and unavoidable food waste into compost! Facebook event here.

Thanks Raglan, we are stoked to provide these opportunities for more learning, connection and together working towards zero waste with you, your whanau and visiting friends ~ Kia ora!
