Charlie discusses rubber as a renewable resource, ongoing issues and challenges in the recycling industry, organising pick ups from bike stores and workshops and council collection points, of which Yarra Council and City of Greater Bendigo Council are partners in the program and how to become a recycling partner.
Local news includes a possible threat to the long promised protected bike lanes on Inkerman Street at next Glen Eira Council meeting on Tuesday 22 November, as the constructed lanes would be a vital link between the new St Kilda Road seperated bikes lanes and Djerring Trail. Show your support for the protected lanes, see Glen Eira Bicycle Users Group facebook link, twitter thread with additional details and contacting Glen Eira Council
