Waterworld will prevent more than 15,000 hot chip buckets, 6,000 coffee cups and 5,000 nugget containers going to landfill this season, with the introduction of compostable packaging at its café.
This equates to a reduction of 836 kilograms of CO2 and 440 kilograms of waste1.
All hot food purchased from the Waterworld café will be provided to customers in compostable packaging from local supplier Eco Office – everything from chip buckets and sauce containers through to coffee cups and straws.
“We’ve spent significant time during the off-season working on our waste strategy to meet the needs of our community. We’re looking forward to seeing how patrons respond to this positive change,” said centre manager Nigel Dennis.
More green organics bins have been installed so swimmers can easily dispose of their compostable food packaging in the right way.
Messaging from our waste monsters Chomp, Tasty and Crunch are now seen on landfill, recycling and green bins to help adults and children alike select the correct bin for their rubbish.
