The Australian Business Award for Environmental Sustainability recognises organisations that demonstrate leadership and commitment to the protection of the environment.
SITA Environmental Solutions has been working with Taronga Zoo since 2009 to provide a tailored and innovative waste management service. The partnership aims to maximise recycling to divert waste from landfill.
Taronga Zoo's public & office areas produce around 35 tonnes of waste every month. Over 80 percent of the waste from these areas is successfully recovered by SITA and diverted from landfill.
Furthermore, over 550 tonnes of animal waste is composted and 100 tonnes of paper and cardboard is collected each year for recycling.
