ASPIRE is an online marketplace through which participating organisations can trade items that may otherwise end up in landfill.
The user-friendly digital trading platform has been operating for five years in Victoria; matching those who have waste products to dispose of with those who can reuse, repair, remake and recycle the products.
Anything an organisation no longer wants or needs can be traded, from old carpet underlay, used office chairs and flat car batteries to animal waste.
Redland City Council – along with our neighbouring Gold Coast and Logan councils – is part of a free 12-month trial (the CCIQ ecoBiz ASPIRE Pilot) through which Redlands Coast business with fewer than 100 employees can join ASPIRE and start trading for free and businesses with more than 100 employees can join for a fee.
Please visit ASPIRE website for further information.
