Presenter: Adam Woodhams
A key aim of sustainability is closing the loop, such as diverting useful materials from landfill. Adam takes a look at one such facility that is helping to close the gap.
- Every year, the SITA Advanced Resource Recovery Technology Centre (AART) facility in Sydney diverts 50,000 tonnes of material from landfill, reducing waste and avoiding greenhouse gas emissions.
- Materials such as home garden green waste, manures, waste sand and fine pine bark are turned into top-quality landscape and garden products.
- SITA Organics products are also used around Australia for sustainable soil management in a range of applications such as horticulture and agriculture, as well as commercial landscaping and soil rehabilitation.
