Citywide recognises that improving outcomes for customers extends to changing the behaviour of community members.
Citywide’s Sustainability Manager currently provides Waste Education Consultancy services to the Cities of Melbourne and Manningham under our Waste Management Service Contracts.
The annual Waste Education Strategy developed for the City of Melbourne includes an ongoing focus on improving recycling rates in multi-level residential apartments. In partnership with Melbourne Inner City Management (MICM), Citywide reviewed the effectiveness of recycling services and produced new, colourful recycling stickers and signage with multi-lingual information.
A survey of tenants’ recycling practices is planned for the next phase of the project to assist in further improvements to the service. Two more schools were provided with Waste Wise Schools certification during the year namely Carlton Primary School and University High School.
