Improving the local area for generations to come
Dedicated volunteers from our Worsley Alumina operation in Western Australia have come together to help make a difference in the local community and improve the local area for generations to come.
As part of our community investment projects in Collie and Boddington, our people recently planted more than 2,000 seedlings along the Collie River and Tunbridge Gully in Boddington.
In Collie, the initiative also helped the Friends of the Collie River community group near its goal to plant 10,000 seedlings along the banks of the river through winter.
Earlier this year, we announced that we had had partnered with the Shire of Collie to help improve the water quality in the Collie River.
The agreement will also see us contribute $90,000 over three years to assist with weed eradication and the planting of more than 60,000 native seedlings along areas of the Collie river which have suffered environmental damage.
We are also working with the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council in Boddington to help restore Tunbridge Gully that runs through town and feeds into the Hotham River and have so far invested close to $160,000 to help with weed eradication and river revitalisation.
