Upcycling by Shed 3

Term 1 2021 Timetable

Lids4Kids Queensland are currently collecting lids from all across Queensland for the purpose of upcycling them into new products. Here at Shed 3 we have set up a micro factory and currently have a plastic granulator and extruder to shred and melt the plastic and coming soon is a sheet press so that we can make plastic sheeting. We are working with various stakeholders and Government departments to access funding and other support to develop this project.

The project is entirely run by our fantastic volunteers and we are currently seeking support in the following areas:

  • Administration
  • Lid sorting
  • Aluminium welding
  • Engineering moulds
  • Product design
  • Market research

Want to support this wonderful initiative of saving plastic from landfill and creating new prodcuts that would otherwise use virgin plastics imported from other countryies? For just ten bucks a month you can support us to save lids from landfill, create employment opportunities and see us establish an Arts Scholarship for young people.
