REmida Perth Reopens Tomorrow, 19 January 2016

REmida Perth reopens for material collections tomorrow, Tuesday 19 January, at 12 noon and we’re looking forward to our best year ever!

With our dedicated volunteer and staff group, nearly 500 members and a fast-growing group of committed business partners, we have a REmida community that is making a real difference for sustainability in Western Australia.

We’re not planning to rest on our laurels anytime soon. There are a number of developments planned, most notably including a new website that will offer a better user experience and easier access to information and online services.

We will also continue the popular REmida Perth membership loyalty program in 2016. The program is providing members with continuing savings by way of a “13 months for the price of 12” discount. All you need to do is maintain continuity of membership. The rebate is applied automatically.

General Manager Eden will be away for a few weeks, and we will welcome back our popular former general manager, Dougie Scott, to cover Eden’s absence.

Come and visit soon – you’ll be very welcome.

Happy Holidays and Festive Season

Do you need material for the holidays?

REmida Perth will be open this Saturday from 1pm -2pm to allow for those last minute treasure collections. Then we’re heading off to our party to celebrate the end of our most successful year ever and recognize the great work done by our volunteers.

Our centre will reopen for business in 2016 on Tuesday 19 January.  To cater for the pent-up demand from the break, our doors will open at 12 noon and we’ll be here for you until 5.30pm to get the new year off to a flying start.

We’re planning for 2016 to be the best year ever for REmida Perth, and we’d really like you to be there with us.

Have a safe and happy festive season.

Are you interested in becoming a REmida creative facilitator for our educational programs?


Josie and Gila -facilitator

REmida  runs over a hundred workshops a year and inspires 1000s of children to value waste.
REmida’s  programs have been developed to encourage learning and awareness towards the value of waste and are aimed at children aged 3-12yrs. 

REmida takes bookings from Schools, Daycare and Festivals and community groups.

Workshops are linked to the Western Australian Curriculum and the Aus tralian Curriculum achievements standards and for pre- primary to year 2 (The Early Years) the quality standards from EYLF and the  NQS. All facilitators follow a facilitator overview page that gives direction for each workshop. We aim that while a facilitator is delivering our service their individual skills and individuality comes through in the presentation of the workshop. 

REmida also offers a unique art based consultation where we develop workshops that suit festival environments or community projects and the skills of our facilitators are sort on for extra work for these events.. 

We have a strong, long term team of facilitators that range from community artists, artists, teachers and educators. If you love watching children create, have good presentation skills and love the idea of encouraging learning in sustainability we would love to have you on the RE facilitator team.

The way it works:
To be a REmida facilitator you need to attend two training sessions at REmida. See dates below. 

  • Session one is learning our ethos and procedures and content. 

  • Session two is learning our workshop setup and tool training.

Both workshops are compulsory and you will need to able to attend both to qualify for on the job training.

On the job training is for a new REmida facilitator to “volunteer” with an established facilitator to put theory to practice and understand the setup and workings of our presentation. An evaluation is done and in most cases you are ready to take on contracted work with REmida. 

Once you become a REmida facilitator, you have the opportunity to apply for any of the REmida jobs that are sent out by email. That means you choose the jobs that suit your skills and availability.

Jobs are booked and prepared by REmida and facilitators are trained to set up, pack up and run these workshops, either at our creative reuse centre in West Perth or to take materials in REmida’s Ute or in their own vehicle to a school, daycare or festival.

What you need to do now:

If you would like to attend training as a new facilitator and you are available on both these training dates please provide:

  • 1 page cover letter of your current/ past experience in  facilitating children or groups 
  • and a 1 page CV only.

 and send to Nadia at by Thursday 12th of November

Late applications will not be considered. 

Applications will not be considered by mail.

New facilitator training dates are:

Saturday 21st November – Presenting REmida workshops 10-1pm

Saturday 28th of November – Festival Training and Tool Training 10-1pm

REmida Day 2015: A Spectacular Success

Last Saturday saw another highlight for REmida WA, as we welcomed members and visitors to our West Perth centre for our REmida Day 2015 festivities.  With food, music, face painting and other attractions, including a very popular gift-making workshop, the day had something for everyone.

REmida volunteer and Board member Jackie Johnson opened her very attractive exhibition in the REmida Artspace and more than 30 members came in to collect material. REmida buzzed with activity, excitement and fun.

Our volunteer & staff team, led by Chair Alan & General Manager Eden, worked tirelessly in planning and preparing for our big day, to deliver an enjoyable and memorable experience for our members and visitors.

Thanks team – you did REmida proud.
