- What does sustainability mean to Grasshopper?
Sustainability for Grasshopper Environmental, goes beyond the literal definition of the word, that is to ensure a future where we are able to maintain today’s practices tomorrow. Our definition is to implement practices, take action and promote change today that will significantly transform the way we manage waste as a community now and well into the future.
Our practice of ethical waste management and 100% Environmental Compliance underpins our commitment to Environmental Sustainability. What this looks like is a business practice that never compromises the environment and enables others to do the same.
Recycling & Resource Recovery is at the heart of environmental sustainability for us and we facilitate this through our partnership with our clients and waste processing facilities to recover the maximum volume of recyclable material from waste disposed, with the aim to recycle and divert as much as possible from landfill.
Education is another important factor in achieving greater environmental sustainability. Our knowledge of the current waste situation, barriers to recycling, effective recycling practices and the benefits of responsible waste management is what we use to better educate our community and clients in order to promote mindfulness and action in regard to waste.
