WEST ARTHUR will be one of 17 Western Australian communitiesto receive funding fordecreasingwaste and improvingrecycling methods.

The first round of The State Government’sCommunity Grants Scheme funding for 2016 will provide $128,000 for groupsfrom regional centres includingExmouth,Denmark andtheWheatbelt.

Recipients will also include Perth-based groups fromBedfordale, Belmont and Rockingham.

WA Environment Minister Albert Jacob said the groups provided importantinitiatives and public education for minimisingwaste.

“The successful community projects show the dedication of the people behind these initiatives,many of whom are volunteers,” he said.

“Projects include an online domestic waste reduction program, increasing plastic recycling stations, community waste management workshops, and recycling green waste at regional community gardens.

“I commend these community groups on their commitment to reducing waste and on the example they set.

“The Community Grants Scheme continues to remind us that positive attitudes and actions about waste and recycling benefit all West Australians.”

The West Arthur Community ResourceCentre (WACRC)will receive $1,800 to buy and print 500 jute shopping bags promotingReduce, Reuse, Recycle and shop localmessages.

WACRC Assistant Manager Rebecca South said the centrehas committed to the promotionof waste reduction.

“We recycle a lot here at the West Arthur Community Resource Centre -people drop off batteries, phones, glasses and all sorts of things here,” she said.

“We were a finalist, not last year but the year before,in the Infinity recyclingawards so we’re a keen place for recycling.

“We can all have a think about how we can reuse things instead of throwing them away or not buying things in the first place and just being mindful of everything that you do, then it becomes a habit and adds up over many people and many days.”

The Community Grants Scheme has donated approximately $1.35 million to 144 groups supporting waste management projects.

The government’s Waste Strategy target has aimedto divert 65 per cent of metropolitan waste from landfill by 2020.
