The Challenge

Bowraville is small regional community on the mid north coast of New South Wales, with high proportion of first nation people. Due to the remote area, there is a lack of employment opportunities for the youth.

Solution

The Bowraville project was established after Miimi Aboriginal Corporation contacted Plastic Collective, as part of an ambitious plan to turn the old Bowraville Buttery into The Centre for Sustainable Solutions, to provide employment opportunities to the local Indigenous youth. The site required DA’s and site preparation, educational training of local Indigenous participants, who will operate the recovery and concentration activities using a containerised Recycling Station. Training in plastics education modules commenced in late 2021, with the operational training and project management currently being implemented (Jan-March, 2022). The Bowraville project was supported by Gowings Whale Trust to recover a combination of ocean/ ocean-bound plastics and kerbside plastics for use in surf products, in partnership with Surf Hardware International.
