Waste management Adelaide – why Adelaide is the greenest big city in Australia
Adelaide has long had progressive environmental projects in place – such as the energy from waste facility at ResourceCo and also money back on recycling projects.
The Guardian article (linked here): also accredits Adelaide with being the strongest environmental city nationally. We quote from the article below:
“Last year, Adelaide city council and the government of South Australia announced that they were working in partnership to make the state capital the “world’s first carbon neutral city” (or at least by 2025). According to a spokesman, Adelaide City Council allocates 1% of total rates to its Climate Change Action Initiatives Fund annually. In 2015/16 this is $932,000.”
“An action plan is in the works for later this year, but it is hoped the program will bring $10bn of low-carbon investment to the state and eradicate nearly a million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions every year.”
“The state has also committed to match-fund the city’s incentives scheme so that all building owners and tenants installing energy-efficient devices could claim back some of the costs, ranging from $120 for energy-monitoring systems to $5000 for solar panels and energy storage systems.”
“One of the things I noticed while in Paris at COP21 in December 2015, was the uniqueness of the partnership we have here in Adelaide between the city council and the state government,” says Adelaide’s lord mayor, Martin Haese. Zerowaste SA has published some great resources to reduce waste.
