PINJARRA Com­mu­nity Gar­den and Wa­roona Com­mu­nity Re­source Cen­tre are among groups to re­ceive fund­ing to re­duce waste.

The groups will ben­e­fit from a share in more than $242,000 from the State Govern­ment’s Com­mu­nity Grants Scheme.

Pinjarra Com­mu­nity Gar­den will re­ceive $2807, with $6370 for Wa­roona for pro­grams de­signed to re­duce waste, im­prove re­cy­cling and pro­vide com­mu­nity ed­u­ca­tion.

Fund­ing for the com­mu­nity gar­den will go to­wards buy­ing a com­mer­cial food pro­ces­sor and col­lec­tion drums to re­cy­cle lo­cal food waste into com­post, worm farm food and chicken feed.

Wa­roona will buy worm farms and com­post tum­blers and host waste work­shops on re­cy­cling and com­post­ing at home.

Mur­ray-Welling­ton MLA Robyn Clarke said the pro­grams were mak­ing a big dif­fer­ence and en­sur­ing the en­vi­ron­ment was pro­tected.
