Handybin handed green gong
COUNCIL waste disposal contractor Handybin is celebrating a major achievement.
The company has been rewarded for efforts in increasing efficiency and improving sustainability.
In a recognition event hosted by the NSW Environment Minister Robyn Parker, managing director Harry Wilson was presented with one of 11 silver awards presented to participants in the NSW Government Sustainability Advantage Program.
Handybin regional manager Lee Beckett said the silver partnership was the result of a strong corporate commitment to operating sustainably and reducing resource consumption.
"As part of the program we have made significant energy and water savings, reduced waste to landfill and increased our productivity," he said.
"The NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) have used Handybin as a business case study for our use of a customised resource tracker tool, developed for the Sustainability Advantage program.
"Use of the tool allows us to better track our sustainability performance and make improvements when we need to."
Handybin provides contract services to the Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Nambucca local government authorities.
