Resource Recovery Facility
Since July 2005, Ipswich Waste Services has been operating a Resource Recovery Facility at its Briggs Road depot in Ipswich. This facility promotes resource recovery by recycling waste beverage containers and recovering the liquid content for composting purposes, with absolutely no waste going to landfill from the process.
Cost Effective Environmental Management of Packaging Waste
Ipswich Waste Services Resource Recovery Facility can assist your company in implementing successful product stewardship policies and practices that help to minimise the environmental impacts of packaging in a cost effective manner. This opportunity will help your company to develop sustainable waste management practices and meet the targets set down by the National Packaging Covenant (NPC).
The NPC is the voluntary component of a co-regulatory arrangement for managing the environmental impacts of consumer packaging in Australia. It is an agreement based on the principles of shared responsibility through product stewardship, between key stakeholders in the packaging supply chain and all spheres of government. The regulatory underpinning is provided by the National Environmental Protection Measure (NEPM).
The Covenant is designed to minimise the environmental impacts arising from the disposal of used packaging, conserve resources through better design and production processes and facilitate the reuse and recycling of used packaging materials. The Covenant commits signatories to a national recycling target of 65% for packaging and no further increases in packaging waste disposed to landfill by the end of 2010.
The National Packaging Covenant encourages a co-operative approach between industry and government bodies in order to achieve a national consistency in the lifecycle management of packaging and paper and the implementation of sustainable material recovery systems.
Resource Recovery Facility Capability
We also bale the cardboard packaging and shrink wrap for resale. The product processed by our Resource Recovery Facility requires destruction either because the stock is out-of-date or due to production errors.
We guarantee total destruction of the product with stringent security and tracking measures in place to ensure that all product that arrives at our facility is processed.
This is the only facility of its kind in Queensland!
