Resource recovery and waste
MMSC Recycling Engagement
The Marrickville Metro shopping centre (MMSC) aimed to increase the rate of diversion from landfill from its food court area. Edge was commissioned to support the piloting of a waste sorting station, designed to improve recycling outcomes and engage customers and tenants. The project included a survey of tenants on current packaging use, an educational presentation to centre staff and on-site support on the launch day.
The project has helped to increase the centre’s focus on recycling, with the results of the pilot feeding into the development of the site’s future strategy around waste, including the design of a new bin system.
