Veolia and Northern Midlands Council unite against domestic violence

Veolia Australia and New Zealand has joined Tasmania’s Northern Midlands Council in the Ending Men’s Violence Against Women Campaign, an initiative by White Ribbon Australia, unveiling a specially branded waste services truck this week.

Martin Robinson, Veolia’s General Manager of Business Development/Marketing – Tasmania, said he was pleased to collaborate with the council and support a serious social issue affecting one in three Australian women.

“Veolia is committed to doing what it can to raise awareness of domestic violence prevention across the communities in which we operate, as well as supporting affected staff,” Mr Robinson said.

“We want the message to have an impact and the custom-made truck decal will be seen by hundreds of drivers, commuters, and residents each day.”

Northern Midlands Council recently rallied support from its waste contractors around the state.

“The Northern Midlands Council is dedicated and determined to raise awareness regarding the White Ribbon Australia campaign. Domestic violence in any form is not acceptable and by working together we can build a future where men’s violence towards women is preventable,” said Northern Midlands Council Mayor David Downie.

As part of its commitment to support the campaign, Northern Midlands Council had signage fitted to its street sweeper which spends countless hours on main roads and residential streets.

The campaign is in support of White Ribbon Day which will be held from 25 November and 6 December 2017.
