Waste Team of the Year - Volunteers of Toodyay Museums!

Published on Friday, 13 November 2020 at 7:00:00 AM

Our volunteers’ shingles project has come up trumps in the Infinity Waste Management Awards 2020. 

The category entered was Waste Team of the Year. Our small group of vollies have beaten some significant opposition including Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, City of Bunbury Waste Services Team and City of Wanneroo Waste Team.

The Volunteers of Toodyay Museums are part of a small, dedicated team that have demonstrated a commitment to reducing waste and protecting heritage through Project Shingles. The team recovered approximately 21,000 shingles and prevented 12 tonnes of material from going to landfill. The recovered shingles are cleaned and sold as souvenirs or used as a unique canvas for craft people to work with.

The annual awards - run by the Waste Authority - recognise individuals, businesses, government, schools, community organisations, not-for-profits and media outlets for their innovative solutions to reduce waste and promote reuse and recycling.

A shortlist of more than 100 nominations were assessed by the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation and the Waste Authority. The calibre of entries was exceptionally high.

The diversity of the nominees this year demonstrates better waste outcomes are being achieved for everything from large redevelopments right through to community projects and illustrates the commitment of many to make WA a better and more sustainable place to live.
