Please note: These events have been postponed from the original dates of 26 July, 9 August, & 23 August due to an increase in COVID-19 cases. Hastings District is committed to keeping our community safe. The dates below reflect the dates for our rescheduled Tradie Breakfasts.

If you’re a builder, plumber, architect, welder, project manager, or just interested in looking after the environment – these events are for you. Created to bring waste minimisation front of mind. Our Tradie Breakfast series bring together local experts to not only introduce you to waste in the demolition and construction industry, but share advice on how to make changes.

Hastings District Council and 3R Group have worked together developing these to provide a great line up of topics and guest speakers for these three events.

Whether you’re an architect wanting to design sustainably, or a tradesman keen to reduce the amount of waste you have on site, Tradie Breakfasts are here to upskill and inspire you.
Take your pick of our unique sessions, or attend all three to become an expert yourself.

If that’s not enough to get you up and at ‘em, we’ll have freshly brewed Bay Espresso Coffee and savoury and sweet treats from Holly Bacon.
