Wilcannia REDI.e Wins NSW KAB award!

REDI.e and the Wilcannia Local Aboriginal Land Council are most deserving of their 2020 KAB NSW Litter Prevention Award. Our partnership with the group could not have been achieved without foresight and enthusiasm from the team at Wilcannia. Hosting a return point has supported multiple outcomes, not just considerable local litter reduction, but education and engagement throughout the community. Jenny Thwaites, CEO of the Wilcannia Aboriginal Land Council and Kevin Cattermole who is on the ground project managing operations for the return point, are to be commended for their success in achievement of this award.
