Gagebrook Bin to Win event a hit
by Brighton Council
Centacare Evolve Housing held their first Bin to Win event at Gagebrook Park in September.
A collaboration between Brighton Council, Zero Waste and Centacare Evolve Housing’s Community Wellbeing team, the event was a great success, with over 80 carloads of rubbish being sorted and removed. All rubbish from the event was sorted into seven categories to ensure the least amount of waste possible was delivered to landfill.
“Together, the community removed 80 car loads of waste, over 200 tyres, over 50 whitegoods and over 40 mattresses,” said Elise Parker, Centacare Evolve Housing Community Wellbeing Officer and Event Coordinator.
The Gagebrook event is the first Bin to Win event held by Centacare Evolve Housing, with more to come thanks to support from the community.
