Making every tree count in Armidale


March 23, 2018


Cleanaway recently donated $1,500 to support the “Every Tree Counts” project in New England. Organised by the Armidale Tree Group, the initiative is an ambitious, large-scale revegetation project that will see over 1 million trees being planted over a 30-year period.

To combat the loss of millions of trees caused by the New England dieback, Every Tree Counts aims to build a 30km wildlife corridor, stretching from the Sumarez Ponds in the west to Dangar Falls in the east.

General Manager of Armidale Tree Group, Alicia Cooper explained that the project aims to address large-scale landscape and environmental issues across the New England region by raising funds, building partnerships, and managing projects.

“We have over 30 years experience and we were one of the organisations to pioneer the revegetation practices used in the New England and tablelands areas,” she said.

Cleanaway’s new CDS truck in Armidale

Cleanaway currently employs 8 local operators, who have lived and worked in Armidale for decades, so they know exactly how to deliver to our customers’ requirements and provide the level of service only a local can deliver. Our fleet is serviced at Westend Truck Services, New England Hydraulics and Rose Valley Steel Works. We also rent depot space from J&K Transportation.

By employing local and supporting local businesses through our fleet servicing and commercial property rental, Cleanaway aims to give back to the communities in which we operate.
