Captain Recycle Puppet

Commissioned by the City of Perth & Mindarie Regional Council, the supersize Captain Recycle puppet is an original prototype which is puppeteered by a single pilot. Captain Recycle appears at major public events, such as the Perth Australia Day Skyworks, to educate the public on how reducing and removing their rubbish after the big events. Captain Recycle also plays a vital role in educating kids about how waste products can be recreated with artistic effect. Captain Recycle is a waste reduction hero, and a great role model and can be leased from Mindarie Regional Council.
