Regular donations from supporters like you enable us to build a secure and sustainable income on which to plan for the future - and allow our committee members to tackle the threats to our environment that might otherwise go unchallenged.

What exactly will my money be spent on?

Demonstrating to protect our environment and lobbying for change is just part of what we do. We also offer information and advice, and community education.

Information and Advice

Our free telephone advice service is available 7 days a week. On a one-to-one basis, our committee members advise individuals and community groups on their specific situation regarding toxic waste in the south east suburbs of Melbourne, helping them to understand what actions can be taken to defend their environment.

Community Eduction

Our discussion forum and leaf drops provides the community with awareness about the toxic waste that is being disposed of and/or treated near residential homes in the south east suburbs of Melbourne.

RATWISE has also been involved in legal cases at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT), and made submissions at panel hearings.
