WDEA Works Social Enterprise Community Update

Customers of WDEA Works Social Enterprise will have noticed that last week the decision was made to temporarily close all businesses including; The Big R’s Shed, E-Waste, Nigretta of Hamilton, Clear Cut, Steam & Clean as well as all NDIS Activities. This decision was made due to WDEA Works Social Enterprise businesses employing members of the community who are some of the most vulnerable and at-risk to COVID-19 (coronavirus).

As the director of Social Enterprise, Jack Melican’s priority is the safety of the WDEA Works clients and staff.

“The health and safety of our WDEA Works community is the most important thing right now. We’re doing all the right things to keep people as safe as possible, particularly our most vulnerable people.”

“We simply have to work together to try and stop the virus spreading,” he said.

WDEA Works Social Enterprise has undertaken a number of safety measures to ensure the community remains healthy. Due to the current situation they have removed all clothes recycling hubs and The Big R’s Shed, and E-Waste drop off facilities have closed to the public.

“We realise with so many people staying at home that many of you will be using this time to do a clean out of unwanted clothes and other saleable items. We ask that you please hold these goods at home. When it all gets back to normal, we will reopen and will be able to gratefully accept the kind donations the community can offer us” said Jack.

WDEA Works would like to thank the community for all the support they have shown and continue to show WDEA Works Social Enterprise and thank them for their understating in this uncertain time. Please be assured that as soon as it is safe to do so, they will re-open the drop-off facilities and again accept the community’s generous donations.
