Garbage Service for Arlparra

After four years, the people living in Arlparra (Utopia) and 16 surrounding communities are finally receiving a garbage service.

This is a huge win for the communities facing serious health, environmental and standard of living concerns. Thanks to the work of Amnesty International and the communities in need we were able to raise awareness in the broader community through the media and letters to Minister Jenny Macklin.

Consequently, a garbage truck is on its way to the area, along with funds and training for four local staff to be paid to manage the service.

This shows how working together, we can make an impact.
