About OPAL

In 2012 when the dump was announced, two young DJ’s hauled their audio equipment into Colombo Hall and invited the public to talk. At the end of that discussion, a core group said they would found an association to stop the dump. Partner organisations quickly came to the fore too. Thus the OPAL Alliance was formed.

The founding board worked to establish a constitution, incorporate OPAL, research and inform the public and local politicians, all the while fighting the dump. That fight continues with an active hands-on board, many members and volunteers lending a hand at weekly sign-wavings, assisting at ReuseapaloozAHA!, writing letters to the Minister of the Environment, filling the house at public meetings and keeping up to date on how to defeat the dump.
