Telwater, the largest aluminium boat manufacturing company in Australia has embarked on an ambitious recycling program, joining forces with SITA Australia to reduce waste and leave a positive impact on the environment.

Telwater’s eight strong brand portfolio consists of Quintrex, Stacer, Savage, Savage Fibreglass, Yellowfin and Archer boats as well as Desert Edge Campertrailers.

After one month of putting recycling initiatives into practice, Telwater has achieved great success already recycling the targeted 60 per cent of general waste that was determined in a recent audit.

SITA Australia, previously SITA Environmental Solutions, is the Australian leader in resource recovery providing weekly services to more than 3.7 million individuals, 43,000 businesses and over 55 municipalities across Australia.

SITA Australia’s Acting Queensland State Business manager Liesl Hull has taken on the job of educating Telwater staff on recycling and has been impressed with the positive response she has received.

'We have had a great response to the new recycling initiatives at Telwater and I am continually impressed by the positive attitude expressed by both factory and office staff,'

'Telwater has made significant improvements in a short period of time, it just goes to show it only takes a little bit of knowledge to make things happen,' Liesl said.

Telwater Site Manager Kevin Champney is responsible for the partnership with SITA Australia and is delighted with the amazing results that have been generated after only one month.

'In addition to organisational commitment, the key to making recycling work is to have a service provider who’s willing to put the effort in and customise recycling solutions for your business, that is what SITA Australia has done for us,' Kevin said.

'SITA’s research makes recycling more sustainable by looking at alternative methods to dispose of waste, and it’s this ongoing research and commitment to our recycling needs that have allowed us to achieve such great results so quickly.

'On each tour of the factory, Leisl will discover yet another item that can be recycled as opposed to being general waste; that’s how we discovered 95 per cent of Telwater’s plastic and timber are recyclable, and that’s in addition to batteries, fluorescent tube lights, metal, glass and the standard paper and cardboard.'

For the month of September, Telwater’s recycling efforts can be equated to saving 81 trees in the amount of timber recycled and Greenhouse Gas CO2 emissions have also decreased with 281 tonnes saved, up from 135 tonnes in August.

Telwater has also seen a remarkable decrease in electricity and water consumption and has greatly reduced the amount of waste that enters landfill, doubling their efforts in all areas from August to September.

Recycling can seem like a tedious process but with climate change and global warming gaining in enormity now is a better time than ever to clean up our act and the environment in the process.

As a company that manufactures products that rely on a healthy and clean environment, Telwater has taken the initiative to make recycling in the workplace a priority so future generations can enjoy the boating lifestyle for themselves.
