Katelyn Fryer is the Waste Education and Projects Officer at Boroondara Council, and is very passionate about all things waste. Katelyn is responsible for helping educate and change waste-related behaviour in Boroondara. She has two science degrees, behaviour change certification, and over 10 years’ experience of working in waste and community behavioural change programs both in Australia and the UK. Katelyn currently works on a range of projects from FOGO (the new food organics garden organics recycling project), electronic waste recycling, waste avoidance and reduction initiatives, through to other recycling measures.  She will talk to us about major changes in waste management and how these will help Victoria become  more waste-smart over the next few years.

During the COVID19 lockdown, General Meetings will be held as ZOOM meetings.

The first half of the meeting is devoted to reports of Club activities  and information about future planned events.

After morning tea, the meeting is addressed by a guest speaker. (Click on “General Meeting” above for each year’s speakers since 2012).

After the meeting, a number of members choose to get together for lunch at a local restaurant.

There is ample free parking in nearby streets, or you can come by tram – we are on the ‘109’ route that runs to and from Box Hill (stop 50).

You will receive a warm welcome, and someone will be assigned to introduce you to other members. Come join us.
