CRC Closure - Dec 2022
Sadly, after 7 years since it all began, Creative Recycling Centre's Management Committee has made the hard decision to dissolve the organisation.
A number of factors have contributed to this final decision, primarily the difficulties in running a not for profit without ongoing funding commitments.
We greatly appreciate all the support and contributions we’ve received over the years. We are super proud of the work we have done. We have delivered some amazing projects with the support of many wonderful organisations, businesses and a generous bunch of volunteers. A special thank you to our Management Committee and staff who have contributed many ideas, hours and love towards this organisation.
