Earlier today, Assistant Treasurer Robin Scott, Member for Cranbourne Pauline Richards and Member for Narre Warren South Gary Maas joined the Outlook Environmental team for a visit to the Evans Road Level Crossing Removal Project site.
Outlook is proud to manage and recycle construction waste material from major infrastructure projects across Melbourne. Waste material from this site is collected and taken to our Hampton Park recovery centre where 90% of it is recycled - this includes concrete, plastic, timber sleepers and metals.
By working with Outlook, the Victorian Government create more benefits than just reducing traffic congestion. These large infrastructure projects generate employment opportunities, over 30 in fact since our first contract in 2017. Best of all, employment opportunities are created for marginalised people in our community, allowing Outlook to do what it does best in providing economic participation to people with disabilities, long-term unemployment and refugees.
"The Framework is delivering meaningful change to people’s lives while getting on with building the infrastructure projects that Victorians need.”, the Assistant Treasurer Robin Scott explained.
“I commend Outlook Environmental for the work they do – they’re making a real difference and it’s wonderful that we’ve been able to support them as a Government.”, said Member for Cranbourne Pauline Richards. Member for Narre Warren South, Gary Maas added “The Framework recognises the critical role small to medium size enterprises play in our community – and Outlook Environmental is not only providing Victorians with employment but doing good for the environment as well.”
