Kalgoorlie Men’s Shed goes mechanical

23/11/2015

The Kalgoorlie Men’s Shed has recently purchased new mechanical equipment to assist members moving projects and donated items around the workshop.

More than 130 Shed members come together weekly to create products from offcuts and donated items. The new equipment will help volunteers lift and move the materials around the workshop.

Through the SUEZ Community Grants program, the Kalgoorlie Men’s Shed received a $3,503 grant to purchase a gantry crane, manual forklift truck and list table trolley to reduce the physical strain placed on members moving projects around the workshop.

Along with the equipment, the grant has funded the establishment of a parts cleaning station in the shed, for members to clean down equipment after use. 

Ken Cowl, State Collections Manager – WA, said SUEZ was excited to support a local organisation that both encourages community involvement and inspires participation in sustainable activities.

“It’s always positive to see community organisations putting waste to good use, creating new products from recycled materials, and putting safety of its members first,” said Mr Cowl.

Kalgoorlie Men’s Shed’s Supervisor, Greg Hinrichsen said that without the support of SUEZ, they wouldn’t be able to have purchased the new equipment.

“Some items are so large they require a number of members to help move them, the new equipment provides a much safe way for members to move donated items and projects around the workshop,” said Mr Hinrichsen.

SUEZ launched the company’s community grants program in 2013 and to date has provided more than $250,000 in funding across Australia.
