Stockland Park Precinct gets greener in National Recycling Week

Stockland Park Precinct is celebrating a win for the environment by introducing new away from home recycling systems across the Precinct’s multiple venues including sports fields, the Kawana Aquatic Centre, the Western Fields, Lake Kawana and the newly constructed Sunshine Coast Stadium.

 

Funded by the Packaging Stewardship Forum (PSF) of the Australian Food and Grocery Council and Sunshine Coast Regional Council, 46 new waste and recycling bins have been installed throughout the Precinct, each carrying the national call to action to recycle, Do The Right Thing, Use The Right Bin.

 

An automated bin lifter and bin security posts were also purchased as part of the project.

 

The new recycling systems will provide away from home recycling opportunities for over 645,000 visitors to the Precinct annually and divert up to 20 tonnes of aluminium cans, PET and glass bottles from landfill each year – enough to fill almost 2,800 household wheelie bins.

 

General Manager of the PSF, Jenny Pickles congratulated Stockland Park Precinct on its enthusiasm and commitment to help patrons boost their “away from home” recycling efforts.

 

“Stockland Park Precinct was eager to encourage recycling on its venues and we came on board with funding and expertise on how to do it.” Ms Pickles said.

 “Through well-placed bin infrastructure and promotion of the Do the Right Thing, Use the Right Bin message, the new systems will make it just as easy to recycle away from home as it is at home.”

 

Australia’s major beverage companies have supported the installation of new away from home recycling systems in 58 of Australia’s major sporting stadiam and entertainment venues which service nearly 42.7 million patron visits annually.

 

Stockland Park Precinct is one of 24 well known Queensland stadia and entertainment venues participating in the PSF’s away from home recycling program, with installations already completed at other Queensland venues (some in partnership with the Queensland Department of Environment and Resource Management).

 

The other 23 venues are Dairy Farmers Stadium, Skilled Park, The Gabba, Suncorp Stadium, Ballymore Stadium, Metricon Stadium,
Virgin Australian Stadium Mackay, Cazalys Stadium, Queensland Sports & Athletic Centre, Brisbane Racing Club, WetNWild Waterworld, Movie World, Dreamworld, Seaworld, Currumbin Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary, Surf Life Saving Sunshine Coast, Cairns Convention Centre, Gold Coast Convention Centre, Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre, Blue Lagoon Entertainment Centre, Brisbane Powerhouse and Mackay Exhibition and Convention Centre.
