Tradie Breakfasts

Our Tradie Breakfast series has now finished.

Created to bring waste minimisation front of mind. Our Tradie Breakfast series brought together local experts to not only introduce you to waste in the demolition and construction industry, but share advice on how to make changes.

Hastings District Council and 3R Group worked together developing these to provide a great line up of topics and guest speakers for these three events.
