About Us

15 years after founding Australia’s lead waste and recycling organisation – The Boomerang Alliance, Dave West has decided it’s time to get his hands dirty – establishing CitizenBlue which is owned by its member groups:

The Boomerang Alliance, Clean up Australia, Green Connect, Landcare NSW, Resource Recovery Australia, SEA LIFE ANZ Trust, Surfrider Foundation Australia and Total Environment Centre.

Our aim is simple but challenging: NO WASTE TO WATER

Each of us have made specific commitments to achieving that goal; CitizenBlue’s initial pledge is two part:

  • 1. To transform Sydney into the Cleanest City in the world by 2020; and
  • 2. To recover at least 350 million pieces of rubbish, and stop them from polluting our waterways and lands

The first step to achieving our aim is to develop our Automated Depot, where we will establish a range of programs to redeem empty beverage containers as part of the NSW Government ‘Return and Earn’ initiative.
