WESFARMERS SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2018

Increasing the volume of waste recycled

Officeworks continues to focus on reducing its operational impact on the environment, by improving recycling practices and diverting more waste from landfill.

This year, Officeworks worked closely with the waste provider, Cleanaway, and all team members, to lift recycling rates from 64.0 per cent as at 30 June 2017 to 75.6 per cent as at 30 June 2018 and thus diverting a total of 4,359 tonnes of waste from landfill.
