S5 E04 The Salvage Yard

Anna and Matt run the Salvage Yard in Castlemaine. They rescue building materials that would otherwise go to landfill, clean it up and sell it on. It isn’t hoarding if you turn it into a business is it?

This episode is exploring waste again, but this time we are looking at the building industry and how we can construct and dismantle buildings better. Another example of how ‘Reduce, Re-use and Recycle’ can be applied to almost anything!
