Waste can end up in landfill, taking up space and giving off greenhouse gasses like methane. Less waste means we can do more for our customers and make better use of our natural resources.
To achieve this we are:
Tracking the amount and types of materials that we currently send to landfill, recycle and reuse.
Reducing the amount of paper, plastics, metals and other materials used across our business.
Switching to materials that can be easily recycled or that are biodegradable.
Finding ways to recycle or reuse materials at the end of their life.
Working with our suppliers, other companies and the government to find new ways of doing things.
Disposing of certain hazardous materials - such as asbestos - in accordance with Australian environmental regulations.
