Bees Wax Wrap Workshop Port Macquarie Library
Friday 9 November 9:30-11:30

Learn how to make your own bees wax wraps and keep your food fresh and plastic free!

If you want to kick the single-use disposable habit then homemade beeswax wraps are a great alternative. You can use them in the place of cling wrap to cover food and keep it fresh, plus they're reusable and can easily be refreshed if the wax starts to wear. They can be used for wrapping veggies, sandwiches, baked goods and small snacks. Come along to a workshop and learn how to make, use and care for bees wax wraps, $20 Per Person, includes workshop & 3 wraps to take home.

Reuse Reduce RecycleMidwaste Regional Waste Forum (Midwaste) comprises six Councils located on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales. Bellingen Shire, Coffs Harbour City and Nambucca Shire form the northern sub-region, Kempsey Shire and Port Macquarie-Hastings form the mid sub-region and Mid Coast Council comprise the southern sub-region. Together, the 6 Midwaste Councils encompass approximately 21,000 square kilometres.

Major industries in the region are farming and logging and the coast is a popular destination for tourists, families and retirees. Seasonal variations in population, due to the influx of tourists during the peak holiday periods, add a level of complexity to the region’s waste management. Waste generated from the additional population influences both the composition and the quantity of waste generated during the holiday seasons.
