Launch of the Wyndham Waste Alliance
The Werribee River Association are excited to launch The Wyndham Waste Alliance, an initiative that aims to build the skills, networks and capacity of local Wyndham residents to tackle the waste crisis. Building on the work of our Litter Blitz groups, the Alliance aims to address the crisis at a strategic level, advocating for change and action from local and state governments and businesses.
The Alliance meets the fourth Thursday of the month at the Westend Business Hub in Watton Street, Werribee and is always open to new members joining. Each session will include a presentation and/or workshop from a guest presenter, followed by an open discussion on the progress of the group’s objectives and priority areas for action.
Our launch event will include a presentation from Wyndham City Council’s Director of City Operations Stephen Thorpe on the work council are doing to support the community keep waste out of landfill and the environment. We will also hear on-ground reports from our Love Our Street and Beach Patrol coordinators. The group will then begin to map out our objectives and shape the agenda for forthcoming sessions.
