Follow the Leader - Citywide Leads the Way with Best Practice Tours

by Citywide | 30.09.2015
Citywide recently hosted a Melbourne Chamber of Commerce Best Practice Tour at its North Melbourne Asphalt Plant and Waste Transfer Station.

Guests from Boeing Aerostructures Australia, Fulton Hogan, RMIT University, Equisuper, Victoria University and VECCI benefitted from the opportunity to walk through the operations room at Citywide’s asphalt plant, followed by a tour through the site where they were introduced to cutting-edge technology. Citywide supplies asphalt to VicRoads, Victorian infrastructure companies and Melbourne councils and is the only asphalt plant central to Melbourne CBD. 

After a short mini-bus ride to Citywide’s Waste Transfer Station, guests experienced a first-hand look at the company’s new Street Sweeping Recycling Plant. This innovative technology has the capacity to recycle 12,000 tonnes of street sweeping material per year; the equivalent of 240,000 green waste bins.

Citywide is excited to be the first to implement this technology in Australia – it is something that will benefit its customers, the community and the environment. Citywide is proud to showcase its innovative plant and techniques.

Citywide Environmental and Infrastructure Group Manager, Matthew Whelan, led the members on the day and provided an overview of the functions of each site and the day-to-day operations.  “Best practice tours give industry a chance to learn from each other and Citywide is leading the way in environmental waste management with the introduction of Australia’s first street sweeping technology,” said Whelan. “We’re glad to be a part of this type of activity as it moves the industry and Victoria forward in a positive way and fosters ideas and partnerships that benefit the community.”
