Flea Market Sunday – Can you help?

Posted on January 15th, 2016 in Events by Tracey

The first of DB’s flea markets for 2016 is on this Sunday from 12-5pm in the main plaza. Fingers crossed for no rain!

We are looking for help to set up the stall, sell goods and pack up at the end of the day.
Can you spare a couple of hours or help with a golf buggy? Please leave a message with Tracey (62223244) via What’s App if you can help.

The flea markets are a great way to reuse, rehome, reduce. There are thousands of books, clothes, toys, household goods and more.

DB Green accepts good quality donations to sell, with all money raised going to the tree planting program, beach cleanups or other environmental events in DB.

Thanks,
DB Green Team

2016 Beach Cleanup Schedule

Posted on January 14th, 2016 in Beach Clean-up by Tracey

2016 Beach Cleanups_edited-1

The DB Green community beach cleanup program enables individuals, families, community groups and school students the ability to make a positive difference to the beaches and sea. Whether you want to participate because it is a fun, social and meaningful way to spend time with family and friends or you want a bit of purposeful exercise, or for students to help fulfil extracurricular requirements, we welcome your help and support.

DB Green supplies washable and reusable cotton gloves (you are also welcome to bring your own), buckets for collecting, trash bags (for landfill and for recycling), water bottle refills and first aid.

We ask that you wear appropriate clothing for the weather and shoes that protect your feet (there are hazards – particularly broken glass) and a full reusable water bottle.

If a school group would like to participate in one of the scheduled beach cleanups please contact dana (at) plasticfreeseas.org to arrange. *

If your company would like to participate in a beach cleanup please contact tracey (at) plasticfreeseas.org to arrange a tailor made program to suit your needs. *

Looking forward to seeing you on the beaches in 2016!

PS If you can’t make these dates you can always go to a beach anytime that suits you and do a mini clean – every effort counts!

* when using the above email addresses, please replace the (at) with @ the above is written to avoid spam being sent to these email addresses. We have enough rubbish to get rid of from the beaches, we don’t need it filling our inboxes too!

Are you looking to get rid of any unwanted electronic items in a safe way?

WEEE (Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment) disposal poses a number of health risks that need to be adequately managed (including arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury and certain flame retardants).

There is a WEEE collection near the post office SATURDAY. See your lobby or management office for the notice of times. This opportunity doesn’t happen very often so please take advantage of it! 

On Sunday there is the flea market in the plaza from 11am – 5pm.

DB Green is clearing out the storeroom and everything must go!
Lots of books!! Lots of good odds and ends too.

We really need help on Sunday from 10am. If you can spare an hour or more it would be greatly appreciated especially with the set up! Please contact Tracey on 6222 3244

If you have anything you would like to donate our stall is near the post office.
