        Comments: 1 event for the month of July.


      Due to the Waste education officer’s position being vacant since the 5 June 2009,
      the monthly target has not been reached.

      However a representative from Waste operations attended a waste seminar at
      Indigiscapes for the Redlands Institute.

      An external consultant has been engaged to provide future School and Community
      events.
