Waste Reduction Programs
We have implemented a plastic recycling program with Plastic Recyclers International (PRI). This partnership involves diverting plastic liners from landfill. Plastic liners are used in our bunkers during harvest. When a bunker is emptied, the plastic liner is baled and moved to our strategic sites, where PRI collect it and process it. The plastic liner is processed to create a variety of practical, long-lasting and environmentally sustainable products.
Native Fauna Management
Southern Hairy Nose Wombat numbers are decreasing significantly in South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula. In 2009, a wombat colony was found on buffer land owned by Viterra at Wallaroo. As a responsible land owner, a Wombat Management Program has been implemented to protect and preserve the colony. This program will help ensure that their habitat and our site operations can co-exist.
Most of our operational sites are equipped with rain water tanks and dams to collect rain which can be used for firefighting.
