    Plastic Police is a community education and recycling program in which Samantha Cross and Lexi Crouch pledge to reduce waste to landfill, protect the wildlife and oceans and much more.
    This Podcast delves into how this began and the journey since.

    Two amazing people with such contagious ambition, I recommend this podcast highly.

    At 9:50, I mention that Sustainability Victoria helped households, schools and businesses save a million dollars on energy costs. Sustainability Victoria actually helped households, schools and businesses save around 11 million so my apologies for the mistake.

    A couple weeks ago we sat down with Matt Genever, Director of Resource recovery at Sustainability Victoria. With over 15 years experience across the Resource Recovery sector and has worked in both the public and private sector in government. The conversation broadens over a few topics such as the Kerbside Recycling system and CDS as well as the current and future situation of recycling here in Victoria. Such a great chat, looking forward to catching up with Matt again soon!

    Gayle is an arts and law graduate from the University of Adelaide. After spending many years working for the NSW Attorney General’s Department she moved into into the Attorney General’s Ministerial Office in 1998, and then the NSW Police Minister’s Office in 2000. Following this time in state government, Gayle worked as a Director in a number of NSW councils, primarily looking after service delivery and assets. She developed and delivered a number of waste management contracts on behalf of councils, as well as managing environment and regulatory departments, including rangers and compliance officers. After three years of being a stay-at-home mum, Gayle returned to work in 2012 at Visy. In November 2015, Gayle joined WMAA as Chief Executive Officer.
