Stratford Shopping Centre won an award for cutting down on waste.
The Zero Waste Awards, held by Environment Media Group on April 9, awarded the centre a bronze award for reducing consumption and maximising recycling materials.
The centre’s operations manager Tony Whitehorn said he was pleased with the recognition.
“The whole team at Stratford Shopping Centre work incredibly hard all year round to create a cleaner, more sustainable shopping centre,” he said. “This award is a fitting testament to their dedication and commitment.”
The centre used refuse-derived fuel to cut general waste sent to landfill from 506.48 tonnes in 2012 to 469.72 tonnes in 2014 – a saving of 7.26 per cent.
