Waste warrior awards open
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.
