Over the next two decades, waste generation from the greater Albury region is expected to increase rapidly. Meanwhile, Albury Waste Management Centre is filling too fast, and at current levels of disposal will be full in less than 20 years. To tackle this problem the Halve Waste program was launched, with plans to halve the amount of material entering Albury Landfill between 2010 and 2014. On Halve Waste website you can find out more about the initiatives of the program, which engages residents, businesses and schools in the greater Albury region.

Parklands Albury Wodonga

Parklands Albury Wodonga ... the benefits are endless
What we do

Parklands Albury Wodonga (‘Parklands') is focused on providing opportunities for people to access and experience the extraordinary range of "bush parks" in and around Albury-Wodonga. We undertake the conservation of these areas from a ecological perspective, whilst allowing sympathetic recreational access.

As of January 2006, our regional parklands embrace in excess of 4000 ha. of land along

  • the riverine environment of the Murray and Kiewa Rivers;
  • tributary creek valleys; sections of the Lake Hume foreshore;
    the High Country Rail Trail;
  • and the hills and ranges in and around Albury-Wodonga.

We are a cross-border, community-based, not for profit organisation, undertaking conservation, recreation, cultural heritage and tourism projects for the benefit of our regional community.

The primary focus of the Board and staff is to facilitate the involvement of local community in each project. By so doing, we aim to ensure that the community accepts ownership and responsibility for the long-term viability and enhancement of all its regional parklands.
