Some recent media coverage of the work of WasteAid Australia.
PUT YOUR RUBBISH IN THE BIN – ENNGONIA PUBLIC SCHOOL
During the project Waste Aid piloted in the communities of Bourke and Enngonia, both communities came up with phrases to put on their signs that they felt resonated with their communities about caring for country. The children at the public school in Enngonia went that little bit further and created a song about keeping their community clean!
The lyrics were written by Patricia Smith and the music written and played by the principal Melissa Harrison and performed by the students (that’s the entire primary school).
The project received no funding, was recorded with sound equipment lent by 2cuzfm, and filmed and edited by Waste Aid.
This song is an example of true grassroots community engagement with waste management. #caringforcountry
