Green Skills is committed to a zero waste future
Our flagship waste project is the Denmark Tip Shop
Operating since 2001 it has diverted thousands of tonnes of waste from landfill.
It provides employment and a range of volunteering and skill development opportunities.

Wilson Wetlands Action Group (WWAG) has utilised the services offered by Green Skills Ecojobs Environmental Personnel for a number of years on our varied projects within Canning River Regional Park.
The office staff are helpful and efficient in dealing with bookings and staffing requests when we contact them. Field staff are punctual and arrive ready to start the tasks of the day. They are professional and understand the complexities of working within fragile conservation areas. With background and interest in the work staff are often able to offer constructive input which contributes to the successful outcome of the project.

With passion and knowledge regarding local issues, Green Skills has assisted WICC to achieved measurable benefits to the biodiversity throughout the catchment area.

It is always a pleasure to work with an organisation that has the systems and the flexibility to act quickly and respond to opportunities that understand, develop and enhance regional community living in ways that that embrace diversity, people, community and environment.

Emerging Community Leadership Program’ for the Department of Regional Development,
Green Skills have brought significant experience in facilitating community engagement and supporting our leadership for sustainability initiatives. With their extensive network of regional contacts across southern WA, they helped us to recruit program participants, and to co-facilitate the program’s adult-learning workshops. The program received positive feedback from program participants and its success was, in no small measure, due to the expertise and support that Louise and Dawn brought to this project.
Ecojobs Services have been excellent, with works attended to and completed on time, to a high standard and within the quoted budget. The personnel are reliable, professional and prompt when working for the City. We have no hesitation in recommending Ecojobs for similar scope of works and looks forward to continuing to work with Green Skills services into the future.

Green Skills have provided services including manual and chemical weed control, Fire Access Way maintenance, pruning, watering, lake and bushland litter removal and cleanups. More recently they have provided temporary personnel under the WALGA preferred supplier contract. Their performance has always been to a high standard in a range of tasks.
The personnel they have available are at or above the required level of knowledge, training and skills for the works requested. Their Team Leaders are professional and communication and administration requirements have at all times been to a high standard. I highly recommend Green Skills Inc based on my experience with them.
