Panpa Bulletin : August 2011
www.panpa.org.au communities never give up Green program ‘world’s best’ AUSTRALIA has the world’s best news- print recycling program – and the figures to prove it. A total 78.7 percent of all Australian newsprint was recovered in 2010, up 0.7 percent from the previous year. The latest national newsprint recov- ery and recycling report, commissioned annually by the Publishers’ National En- vironment Bureau, puts Australian news- paper recycling rates above the European average of 68.9 percent. “Australia’s old newsprint recovery program is the world’s best,” PNEB execu- tive director Lillias Bovell said. “The industry’s very long-term com- mitment to proper stewardship of our resources is really showing the way for other industries.” The report was put together by an in- dependent consultant, Robert Eastment, of IndustryEdge. He said other Australian industries “are rightly envious of the newsprint sector” after almost two decades of improve- ment in the proportion of old newsprint recovered.

This has been a very sad six months. They’re under a lot of stress and strain,” says editor John Hughes, who is also head of the local cham- ber of commerce. “There’s a number of services that have a permanent presence in the area and we push them very strongly through the newspaper. “There’s not a week that goes by where we don’t have an article about where to go for help, what specific organisations can help with and the need for people to speak to others, not keep it bottled up.” As the voice of the residents of the town, the Times has campaigned to be a constant voice in the ears of the authorities to deliver in the rebuild- ing of the town. “State and federal governments have been bloody useless and what they promised, in most cases, they’ve failed to deliver,” says Mr Hughes. “They’re going to break more promises. “But the primary role the Tully Times has had is to continue on with all the news from around the region, there’s a lot that’s good that goes on here, a lot of people have battled back quite well. “Everyone likes to hear news about how well our schools are doing and life does go on, but the cyclone is still a major part of people’s lives.” Preceding the cyclone, torrential rains caused mass flooding across much of south-east Queensland. Communities around Toowoomba, Gympie, Ipswich and the Lockyer Valley were hammered, causing A$1 billion damage. Editor of the Gympie Times, Nev McHarg, says his paper is providing continuous support to the residents, farmers and businesses after the town was cut off from supplies for more than a week. “The rebuild is still going,” he says. “There are still farmers out there trying to rebuild fences and yards. We’ve been on the front foot in campaigning government for the upgrading of roads, backing the SES and we’ve tried to do positive stories and promote the town.” V8 race driver Alex Davison whose Irwin Racing team and the Townsville Bulletin brought 100 kids from Cardwell and Kennedy with their parents to Townsville for the V8 race in July. Six months after the cyclone many still have damaged homes.
