To play a positive role in helping Australia reduce its reliance on landfill and attain more sustainable water outcomes.

WesTrac seeks to operate as an environmentally passive business by continuously improving our waste and water management. Our key targets within this space are to decrease our overall water usage.

WesTrac continuously reviews our recycling opportunities as new recycling facilities and technologies become available. Towards 2030, WesTrac will seek to expand our recycling with focuses on diverting plastics and food waste from landfill, as well as implement waste compaction technology to improve efficiency and reduce collection intervals.

Through conducting annual waste audits, educating our team members on correct waste disposal and collaborating with our suppliers to reduce waste within the supply chain, WesTrac will maintain high levels of landfill diversion. WesTrac seeks to capture, store, and utilise rainwater on our major sites to reduce reliance on potable water supplies. We will continue to expand our non-potable water storage at suitable locations and factor in waters sensitive design principles into site developments.
