May 2018 Lunch Event



Cairns Committee for Waste Reduction 




The Circular Economy and

How to Become a Waste Wise Business




Presented by Leslie van Staveren, President Cairns Committee for Waste Reduction
CBWC 2017 Cairns Business Woman of the Year


Understand what makes up a “Circular Economy” and learn how your business can achieve the status of becoming a waste-wise business.

No challenge is too great for 2017 Cairns Business Women of the Year winner Lesley Van Staveren.

Lesley and her husband Colin are owners of FNQ Plastics, custom fabrication specialists with an environmental focus and an end goal of reducing waste in landfills. Together they make an undeniably dynamic partnership.

FNQ Plastics has a huge range of products including Grizzly Poly Ute Trays, Australia’s first plastic utility tray which won the 2014 TNQ Tropical Innovation In Manufacturing Award, as well as kitchen bench tops, pools, tanks, plastic welders, boxes, park furniture and bollards, to name just a few of their products.

While winning the prestigious Cairns Business Women of the Year award was a thrill for Lesley, she’s also proud that the business has quadrupled in size in the last five years and excited to be the President of the region’s Committee for Waste Reduction that works to help businesses reduce waste. Come join us for vital insights on how you & your business can make a difference. This event is part of Cairns Regional Council’s Eco Fiesta.
