Michael Jullyan, architect and founder of local practice Thinktank Architects has been picking up rubbish along Wynnum Esplanade every weekend this year as he walks his dog. In that time he reckons he’s picked up 10,000 pieces of rubbish, a quarter of which is broken glass (mainly beer and spirits bottles), a quarter plastic bottle lids and slurpee lids and a quarter wrappers and plastic bags, almost all of which can be recycled.
All you need is a few bags with you when you go for a walk… and maybe a pair of gloves.
Thinktank Architects are members of Wynnum Business. Read more about them here…
