Strong plastic sacks

Up until recently, they had a person who took them all but that arrangement has come to an end and we need to find someone else (or several places) who would like some or all of them.

Otherwise, we will have no option but to send them to landfill.

Once, many years ago, I saw a database that matched businesses, with a resource to dispose of, with other businesses that had a use for them. (One persons waste is another person’s treasure?)

Would anyone like a large ongoing supply of sacks? (Note that they are not UV treated, so, they should not be left in the sun for extended periods.) And/or does anyone know of a suitable "resource" centre that could find a taker?

1. Princes St, CBD
2. Jellicoe St car park, CBD

6. Queen St, CBD
