Pilbara News - - Pilbara News - Louise Alling­ham

Nom­i­na­tions are now open for this year’s West Aus­tralian Re­gional Achieve­ment and Com­mu­nity Awards.

Peo­ple are en­cour­aged to nom­i­nate in­di­vid­u­als, busi­nesses or com­mu­nity groups they feel have made a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact or con­tri­bu­tion to their com­mu­nity.

There are 11 cat­e­gories and one over­all State win­ner.

The Pil­bara was well rep­re­sented at last year’s awards, with Tom Price diesel sup­plier Ashoil tak­ing out both the Land­corp Sus­tain­abil­ity Award and the Re­gional De­vel­op­ment Over­all State Win­ner award.

Ashoil con­verts cook­ing oil col­lected from sur­round­ing min­ing camps into biodiesel.

The in­dige­nously owned com­pany also trains Abo­rig­i­nal peo­ple wishing to en­ter the re­source sec­tor and high school stu­dents in an ef­fort to im­prove school at­ten­dance.

Kar­ratha En­viro Group also won the CSBP En­vi­ron­ment Award for its work with the Kar­ratha Com­mu­nity Gar­den, the Con­sumed Re­cy­cled Art Awards and the Plas­tic Bag Free Kar­ratha ini­tia­tive. Visit award­saus­tralia.com. Nom­i­na­tions close on Au­gust 3.
