Did You Know? The Julie Burgess is 64 foot long and weighs 40 tonne. She was built in 1936 in Launceston. During World War II, the Julie Burgess was used to service the Bass Strait undersea cable. She is the last of nearly 150 ketches built by the Burgess family. She was a fishing ketch with a large wet well to hold the catch, that is now being replaced by a saloon. It was with the help of the Australian Government that Devonport City Council could purchase and restore

All Hands On Deck Devonport’s David Pinkard is living proof that the old adage “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” is nothing more than an old wives tale. Mr Pinkard, 81, was a former marine and diesel engine repairer for most of his working life and is now retired. But Mr Pinkard spends a fair bit of his spare time volunteering on the soon-tobe-completed Julie Burgess, but not in the role many would suspect. “I have learnt heaps since I started and it’s funny because despite having a diesel background I am not doing anything on the motor but just helping out as a general offsider to the shipwrights,” he said.

The Spreyton Transfer Station’s TROLL (Together Reducing Our Local Landfill) Shop is to be upgraded courtesy of a joint effort between Lifeline North West Tasmania, Jobfind, the Devonport City Council and a $30,397 grant from the Tasmanian Community Fund. The plans for the TROLL Shop include the construction of a new shed to further enhance recycling efforts, as well as an investigation into new ventures in resource recovery that will encourage community collaboration and support, whilst creating employment opportunities. It is anticipated the extension will be completed in May 2012. The Troll Shop was established in mid 2010 when Lifeline North West entered into a long-term partnership with the Devonport City Council for the purpose of undertaking resource recovery operations at the Spreyton Waste Transfer Station, and re-selling these waste materials to the public through the establishment of a TROLL Shop. The shop services the Mersey area comprising of Latrobe, Devonport and Kentish (population 45,000). The land and the site for the TROLL Shop are provided rent-free from Council. The cost of goods sold is significantly reduced as there is effectively

no purchasing of stock or raw materials, all materials are either donated by the public or local businesses. Surplus made from the TROLL Shop is part of the business unit which funds Lifeline’s 24 hour telephone counselling service. Volunteers and employment placements are engaged to recover, reprocess and sell these materials. Recycling Tips Reduce: Many of the problems created by waste can be addressed by reducing the amount of waste we produce in the first place. Reducing waste includes rethinking what you buy and refusing things you don’t need. Re-Use: It’s amazing how many things can have a second or even third life. If you can’t re-use something, there may be someone else who can. You might find innovative ways to re-use old bags, containers, building materials, clothing and unwanted things. Recycle: When you buy recycled products, you are saving resources and reducing the impacts of pollution. When disposing of products make sure only the items accepted for recycling go in your recycling bin. These usually include glass, hard plastics, aluminium and steel, paper, cardboard and milk or juice cartons.
