Maitland Waste Facility Litter Collection – Promoting Inclusivity and Raising Awareness: Mai-Wel’s Impactful Community Initiatives

Mai-Wel is dedicated to spreading and promoting inclusivity within our community, raising awareness of the potential of people with disabilities, and providing real-life examples of the positive outcomes our services achieve.

One of our standout initiatives is the offsite litter collection job at the Maitland Waste Facility, where our supported employees are making a significant impact. These dedicated individuals are not only picking up litter but also building meaningful relationships with customers, receiving onsite training, and positively influencing their communities.

This employment opportunity fosters both personal and professional growth. To ensure success, our supported employees undergo comprehensive onsite training, including theory induction and practical demonstrations. This thorough approach equips them with the necessary skills and knowledge to perform their tasks efficiently and safely. From understanding waste management protocols to mastering litter collection techniques, every aspect of the job is meticulously covered during training sessions.

A notable benefit of this role is the physical activity involved, which promotes personal well-being. Our supported employees report noticeable improvements in their overall fitness and stamina since joining the crew.

Beyond individual benefits, this work has a broader purpose. By actively participating in litter clean-ups, supported employees contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable environment, embodying the positive impact of community inclusion and empowerment.

Join us in celebrating the achievements of our supported employees and the transformative power of inclusivity. Together, we are building a better, more inclusive community for everyone.
