Protecting the environment and promoting sustainability across Melbourne’s west

WREC aims to cultivate a vibrant network of individuals, community groups and decision makers to create a long-term sustainable vision for the western metropolitan region of Melbourne.

Working in partnership and empowering communities is central to the work of WREC.

The WREC was formed in 2001 following a campaign between 1997-98 to stop a toxic dump being developed in Werribee.
