That’s why Holcim employees at Lynwood quarry have teamed up with local volunteers to help keep the streets of Marulan clean. Every week a group of local volunteers get together to help tidy up the streets of Marulan. Holcim employees volunteer there time to help sweep the streets, pick up rubbish and then dump it at the tip afterwards.
Besides creating up to 100 permanent jobs and numerous casual contracts at Lynwood quarry, Holcim are dedicated to helping the community wherever they can.
Holcim Australia employees at Lynwood quarry will be volunteering every month for the next three months volunteers around Marulan undertaking activities such as mowing, whipper snipping, blowing, installing garden edging and fencing and any other odds and ends to assist in keeping Marulan beautiful for residents and visitors.

The Re-enactment of Kangaroo March will start at Wagga Wagga on 5th September 2015 and make its way through the same towns as the original but connecting those towns via more back roads and private property reflecting the changed traffic conditions in the 100-year interval. The March concludes in Campbelltown on Saturday 10th October 2015 having covered 520km over 36 days.
The re-enactment mission focuses on commemorating the historic event of the 1915 March, inspiring the current generations to achieve success in life as a reflection of the value derived from the WW1 sacrifices, and educating children on the history of the long and continuing fight for freedom.
The purpose of the march is to:
pay tribute to those local diggers recognising their contributions and sacrifices for the WW1 cause of freedom
pay tribute to the families, especially mothers, who were left grieving in Australia in consequence of that war
help communities along the route commemorate the 36 days of the March
motivate the children of the cities, towns and villages along the route of the March to learn about a significant portion of our local and national history
inform the broader community of a memorable event of our collective past.
Holcim are going to assist with the movement of the team through the site. This will involve the stop of heavy vehicles along the main access and the creation of a dedicated route for the team to move through and an escorted passage. Holcim has conducted a risk assessment to map out where the participants could march and see how Holcim can help with making them safe. Holcim has also undertaken analysis on weed seed transportation and preventing the movement of weeds from other areas onto our site.
