Albury Sunday 9th of September, 2012
We’re opening two Albury homes for this year’s Sustainable House Day. This is your personal invitation to see what these homeowners have done and how their ideas can apply to you!
If you’re thinking about improving your home’s energy, water or waste management efficiency, or saving some money on those, speaking to homeowners about their own experiences is a must. Even if you’d just like to see what others have done, we bet you’ll be inspired.
The homes will be open between 10am and 4pm, and entry is FREE!
No need to rsvp or book, just come along. Addresses will be published at: www.sustainablehouseday.com.

The new National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme will provide Australian householders and small business with access to free recycling services for televisions and computers.
The Scheme aims to lift television and computer recycling from the current low rate of around 17 per cent to 80 per cent by 2021-22. This is important because these products contain valuable materials that can be re-used, as well as substances which are hazardous to humans and the environment.
