NATIONAL RECYCLING WEEK

National Recycling Week was founded in 1996 by Planet Ark and provides an opportunity to bring national focus to the environmental benefits of recycling. Australians are the second highest producers of waste, per person, in the world with each person sending over 690 kilograms of waste to landfill each year.
 
This year, National Recycling Week will be held from 12 - 18 November. The 2018 theme; From Waste War to Recycling Reboot, aims to resolve confusion surrounding how to recycle right and what happens to our recycling, and follows a range of materials on their journey through the emerging circular economy.  To find out more information on how to celebrate National Recycling Week, please visit: https://recyclingweek.planetark.org/
 
We invite you to participate in National Recycling Week by:
 
  • Thinking of strategies you can implement to reduce the waste generated at work and at home;  
  • Avoiding single use plastic and excessive food packaging (i.e. coffee cups, straws, plastic bags);
  • Find a recycling service through recyclingnearyou.com.au or businessrecycling.com.au;
  • Finding your nearest collection point for electronic waste. Phones, batteries, computers and related items contain hazardous materials that require special disposal;
  • Learn what goes in your recycling bin and share the information with others.

NABERS RATING

AMP Capital are commited to developing and delivering sustainable strategies. We are pleased to advise that AMP Capital has finalised a new NABERS Energy and Water rating for our building so we can see how we are tracking at Karrinyup Shopping Centre.

We have secured a 4.0 star NABERS Energy rating and a 2.5 star NABERS Water rating. But we are not stopping here; we are always looking for new ways of improving the performance of our buildings, whether it is through capital upgrades or pushing the boundaries in operational excellence.

RECYCLING RESULTS

With the assistance of our retailers, we have been able to achieve excellent results with our cardboard recycling and co-mingle bins. Our efforts during the last financial year have resulted in the following environmental benefits:
  • Enough recycled materials to offset greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 22.7 medium cars
  • Energy savings equivalent to 217.7 household’s annual usage
  • Water savings of 106.9 domestic sized swimming pools
  • Diverted 1013.5kgs of batteries and 240.5kgs of fluorescent lamps and tubes from landfill.
  • The centre has also started a new initiative to recycle coffee grounds from our cafes and coffee retailers
