Workpower kept the spotlight on sustainability as the organisation played host to the Hon. Stephen Dawson MLC, Minister for Environment; Disability Services; Electoral Affairs at Balcatta Recycling Shop.
Accompanied by Workpower CEO Lee Broomhall, City of Stirling Mayor Mark Irwin, and Member for Balcatta David Michael, the Minister toured the site and explored the work that saw Workpower awarded Waste Team of the Year at the 2018 Infinity Awards.
‘It’s fantastic to be able to share the hard work of our team,’ said Ms Broomhall. ‘We really appreciate the Minister taking time to see sustainable practice in action.’
During the visit, the Minister also saw first-hand the many opportunities created for people with disability by Workpower’s management of the Recycling Shop.
‘Thanks to our partnership with the City of Stirling, we have been able to develop sustainable employment opportunities for people with disability that benefit the community,’ said Ms Broomhall. ‘Our ongoing success highlights the importance of social responsibility in local government, and we’re very pleased to be able to contribute to two key areas of social change.’
