Pilbara News - - News -

Ap­pli­ca­tions are now open for the an­nual In­fin­ity Awards, which recog­nise suc­cess­ful projects in waste min­imi­sa­tion and re­cy­cling.

En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter Al­bert Ja­cob said the awards ac­knowl­edged in­di­vid­u­als and or­gan­i­sa­tions that helped to achieve the Gov­ern­ment’s waste re­duc­tion strat­egy.

“It’s im­por­tant to ac­knowl­edge work that ad­vances bet­ter waste man­age­ment. In­no­va­tion, com­mit­ment and cre­ativ­ity have been the hall­marks of past award re­cip­i­ents and I’m ea­ger to see the ef­forts of this year’s en­trants,” he said.

The In­fin­ity Awards are open to in­di­vid­u­als, busi­nesses, lo­cal coun­cils, com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions, State Gov­ern­ment agen­cies, schools and uni­ver­si­ties which demon­strate a com­mit­ment to im­prov­ing the way the com­mu­nity deals with waste.

Un­der the Gov­ern­ment’s waste strat­egy the re­cov­ery tar­get for mu­nic­i­pal solid waste in ma­jor re­gional cen­tres is 50 per cent by 2020.

Nom­i­na­tions close on July 17.
