Tackling waste in bush communities

 

Overview

This program involved a series of workshops to assist Indigenous communities to enhance their knowledge and skills in relation to the handling of rubbish, protecting water supplies from contamination, creating a safe environment for workers and improving the overall health of the communities.

The major issues tackled were protecting water supplies, reducing fly numbers, reducing the smell from waste, worker safety and recycling.

It was a joint project between the Charles Darwin University, Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education, NT Department of Health and the Barkly Shire Council. Communities involved included Arlparra, Ampilatwatja, Alpururrullam, Elliott and Ali Curung.
