Sydney Cricket Ground reduces waste with Method Recycling Bins
Sydney Cricket Ground and Allianz Stadium host more than 65 major sporting events every year, attracting close to two million fans through the gates. They have introduced Method Recycling Bins to their venue to engage users to recycle, reducing waste to landfill.
“Roughly 1,100 tonnes of waste is generated annually and our recycling rate is currently at 65 per cent”, said a Trust spokesperson. “We’ve set the bar at 75 per cent for next year with a long term target of over 90 percent for total resource recovery”.
The Method recycling bin and bin stations bring a host of benefits to support responsible waste management and encourage recycling. They are highly visible, which promotes recycling rather than hiding it away and shows a company is focused on sustainability. The Method bins are also easy to service. Features like their patented bag retainer hold the plastic liner to stop it falling into the bin and hide the bin liner (which avoids the liner hanging out like an ugly, untucked shirt around the bin edge).
“The SCG Trust has plans to make our sporting precinct cleaner and greener than ever before. Method bins have been installed in our offices, members’ area and throughout corporate suites and we have plans to improve this offering in the future as we look to reduce our carbon footprint. We’re committed to a sustainable future and this is a small step in the right direction. The smart technology installed will help to better educate sporting fans who come to our grounds – something we’re proud to be a part of.”
Method Recycling will be showcasing some exciting NEW products at Total Facilities, from 29-30 March, at the ICC Sydney Darling Harbour, so please make sure you come down to meet the team at stand C4.
