Remote and Indigenous communities clean up program

 

Overview

The Remote and Indigenous communities clean up program supports Indigenous communities to address litter concerns in their communities. The program flows from the introduction in 2007 of the Clean up book initiative (see resource section) which assisted 50 remote Indigenous communities across Western Australia and the Northern Territory. The program has been extended and now provides support to many communities across Australia, including for example:

This program has involved a collaboration between the Australian Food and Grocery Council and Keep Australia Beautiful NT. This initiative has seen the introduction of new recycling systems to many Indigenous communities who have never had a recycling service before.

This resource provides practical, low cost and easy to apply information on preventing and reducing litter in Indigenous communities. The clean up book provides the tools for regional shire councils, remote community managers, community development associations and community waste managers to support Indigenous communities in this process. The nine step program outlined in the booklet encourages communities to take responsibility for, and participate in attending to the concerns with litter and recycling.
