RME was born in 2018 by passionate residents who wanted to see more recycling options in Hobsons Bay. The community initiative was supported by the Williamstown Community and Education Centre and received grant funding from The Hamer Sprout Fund and Hobsons Bay City Council.
Collected materials are recycled through our partners Green Collect, Cleanaway, Planet Ark and Terracycle.
