Community involvement

Councils can get involved with KESAB through their communities in programs such as Sustainable Communities, Sustainable Cities, Road Watch and through community education.

Councils can enter the Sustainable Cities (metropolitan) or Sustainable Communities (regional) program and showcase council, community, school and business initiatives that contribute to the environmental and social sustainability of their area.

Councils can also encourage schools, community groups and businesses to get involved with the Road Watch program. Road Watch is a volunteer community-based program run in partnership with the Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure. Groups adopt a minimum of 2km of roadway and usually undertake four clean ups a year. Necessary equipment, including safety gear, is supplied to the groups and after each clean up, groups report back to KESAB. Councils support Road Watch groups by assisting with removal of collected waste.
