Moving towards zero waste.
Our waste management follows the reduce, reuse and recycle hierarchy, and is continuously measured for improvement.
Why waste management is important
Nothing need be wasted. The more you think of waste as a resource, the more value you get out of everything you buy. We work with our contractors and suppliers to manage our waste streams generated from:
- The construction of new assets.
- Operation and maintenance of existing assets.
- Our office activities.
We manage customer wastes that are discharged to sewer. Water is recovered from these wastes for recycling through our integrated water management initiatives. Sewage treatment plants extract biosolids from these wastes and we beneficially reuse 100% of our biosolids.
Through advancements on our existing Sewerage Management programs we are actively exploring opportunities to recover other resources. These include energy and nutrients that can be extracted from sewage.
