Terracycle Hub.

Our Terracycle Hub is now up and running at Salamander Bay Recycling Centre!

PFPS is collaborating with Salamander Bay Recycling Centre to bring the Port Stephens community a collection hub for specific items to be recycled. This project is a tangible way for the community to monitor the amount of waste we keep out of landfills and support businesses & individuals in recycling.
