Car Removal and Recycling Project


The old car wrecks that have been in and around Anmatjere have been removed. A car baling project was set up at Ti-Tree and was very efficient; they were able to process a car every eight minutes!

There were triple trailer trucks carting cars from Laramba and Engawala to Ti-Tree for baling as well.

Now that they have completed the baling at Ti-Tree they will move to Yuendumu and bale all the old cars of Nyirripi, Yuelamu and Yuendumu at the Yuendumu waste management facility.

After being baled the cars are taken down south for recycling.
