Reducing CO2

In the last year we have collected over 5400 tonnes of waste from local businesses and recycled over 4200 tonnes. That’s 76% of business waste diverted from landfill, well on the way to our target of 90% by 2018.

Dumping waste in landfill is unsustainable and causes large quantities of carbon dioxide to be released into the environment. We estimate that the amount of waste we alone diverted from landfill last year has reduced CO2 emissions by 4794 tonnes, the equivalent of 607 return flights from here to Australia!
