Rubbish and Recycling Management
Falls Creek Alpine Resort is making a commitment to the sustainable management of recycling and waste at Falls Creek.
Our goal: We are aiming to divert 80% of waste from landfill by 2030 in alignment with the target set by the state government.
Strategy: To achieve our goal waste and recycling at Falls Creek will now be separated into organics, glass, mixed recycling and waste.
Impact: Separating organic waste will remove 50% of our waste from landfill. More than 60% of recycling is glass and separating it will aid in the recycling of this material.
Community action: Many of our stakeholders already correctly separating their waste, by winter 2024 everyone will be expected to separate their waste correctly.
Let’s work together to reduce, reuse, and keep valuable resources out of landfill.
