If you’re someone who finds yourself surrounded by clutter, then the upcoming ‘Less is More’ workshops hosted by the team at MidCoast Council in partnership with MIDWASTE, might be just what the doctor ordered.

A recent study undertaken by the Australian Institute found that the average Australian spends $1,226 on items they don’t actually use, which equates to a whopping $10.5 billion across the nation!

In these fun and informative workshops, you’ll discover tips and tricks on how to declutter your home (and your life) so you have more space for the things that really matter. You’ll also leave armed with helpful information on how to prevent the dreaded clutter returning.

MidCoast Council’s Manager of Waste Health and Regulatory Services, John Cavanagh, encourages those who need a little extra help in decluttering their home to come along and find out more. “The Less is More workshops are a fun and engaging way to help people think about their stuff, what actually matters to them and help them to both manage clutter more effectively and dispose of excess stuff in a sustainable way,” said John.

The ‘Less is More’ workshops will be held at:

Forster Library on Wednesday 8 March 2017 from 6 to 8pm. To register please call the friendly Forster library team on 6591 7256.

Taree Library on Tuesday 11 April from 6 to 8pm. To register please book online here

This project is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded by the waste levy.
