BottleCyler

ENVIRONMENTAL FOCUS

The Grand has successful utilised the BottleCycler machine for almost 2 years. The BottleCycler is an innovative glass-crushing machine that efficiently recycles glass and reduces land fill and waste.

Since installing the BottleCycler, The Grand has saved the greenhouse gases of more than 11 tonnes of CO2 being emitted into the atmosphere, saved 124 gigajoules of electricity, 44,359.2 litres of water, 43.63 cubic metres of landfill space saved plus more impressive statistics below. These statistics are increasing every single day. 

This is a small, yet vitally important, way that we are supporting our community and acknowledging the impact that we all have on climate change.


Mil-Tek

ENVIRONMENTAL FOCUS

Adding to our commitment to the environment, we welcome Mil-tek cardboard baler and waste compactor to our venue.

This reduces our carbon footprint and improves our sustainability targets to minimise the number of waste collections weekly.

In addition to our BottleCycler, we are excited to have two of Mil-Tek’s products on board.

Here’s our team training upon installation and our two new Mil-Tek products at The Grand:
