A whole host of politicians, dignitaries, members of the public and Valmar employees recently attended the official opening of the new Joint Venture Singulator Shed at the Gilmore waste management site.
The opening ribbon was cut by Mike Kelly, Federal Member of Eden Monaro, who also commented on the employment opportunities that Valmar has been able to tie together with the new NDIS.
Roy Humphries the Valmar Chairman, Peter Bruce – CEO of Exchange for Change, James Hayes – Mayor Snowy Valleys Council and Ken Donnelly – Cleanaway, each spoke as representatives of the four “partner” organisations involved in this initiative. The theme of all the speeches was the great things in terms of triple bottom line that this project achieves….namely more jobs, better jobs and greater job security for people with disabilities, benefits for the environment through greater recycling and less litter, and financial viability for Valmar’s business operations.
The Gilmore singulator is the only one in the entire Riverina and will in time create even more opportunities to grow and consolidate the Gilmore Waste Management Facility as a valuable regional resource in effective recycling and waste minimisation and management.
