Share on Google+Share on LinkedInTweet about this on TwitterShare on Facebook

Jerilderie Tidy Towns Committee was one of the successful applicants in the first round of the Community Litter Grants, run in 2014. Jerilderie is a popular stopping place for travellers on the road to or from Melbourne, and travellers passing through were found to be a common source of litter in the area.

The local community wanted to both stop the litter, and prompt those passing through to stop and appreciate the natural beauty of Jerilderie, the town that’s “in the middle of nowhere, on the edge of everything.”

This short video tells their story.

The Community Litter Grants program is one of KNSWB’s initiatives to prevent and reduce litter with locally-specific solutions, through the local communities who know their place best. If you are interested in applying, read more on the Community Litter Grants homepage, or contact communitylittergrants@knswb.org.au.
