Central Australian waste management program wins award

Date posted: 9 November 2013

Barkly Shire Council was recognised for its continuing efforts in waste management as part of the Territory tidy town awards in Alice Springs recently.

The Barkly Shire, a partner in the Central Australian Waste management program, took out the Best waste management initiative award in conjunction with the Central Desert and MacDonnell Shires. This award recognises the outstanding work that all three Shires have done, in particular their landfill upgrades, and highlights the value of collaborative regional partnerships.

'This award is a reflection of the hard work by all parties involved, and I congratulate everyone for working together for the benefit of the communities,' said Shire President Barb Shaw. 'This joint waste management project with our sister Shires further demonstrates that a Central Australian approach can be adopted for a wide range of environmental initiatives to maximize the potential of local resources to achieve real outcomes.'

Titjkala, in the MacDonnell Shire, received the highest accolade of the night, taking out the overall Territory tidy town award.
