In September Yuwaya Ngarra-li undertook an audit of Walgett's waste to progress our project to start-up a waste social enterprise. PhD candidate Makrita Tanayian Solitei from Wollongong Uni led the audit, ably assisted by Walgett Waste Station workers and Jess McDonald, Walgett Shire Council's Manager of Planning and Regulatory Services. DEG was supported in this activity by Netwaste. The audit gave us all insights into the work needed to improve the waste quality and the quantities of different materials currently going to landfill. Our next step is to prepare our business cases for the two social enterprises Yuwaya Ngarra-li aims to create (led by Dharriwaa Elders Group) which will reduce waste going to landfill and create jobs. Wins for the whole community we hope.
