In a bid to see hospitality by-products effectively recycled, the Coogee Bay Hotel set up a program with the Beverage Industry Environment Council to develop "Best Practice" Waste Management for ongoing use in hotels and registered clubs around Australia.
Coogee Bay Hotel is serious about reducing its environmental impacts. Coogee Bay Hotel recycles bottles, cans, cardboard, paper and plastics.
As a result of these environmental initiatives, Coogee Bay Hotel, Sydney’s largest hotel outlet, is now recycling 75% of all the packaging materials consumed on site.
In 2008-2009, over 41 tonnes of paper & cardboard were recycled plus an additional 8.5 tones of glass and plastic was recycled.
This resulted in significant environmental savings.
133 square meters of landfill was saved
741 gigajoules of Energy Saved. Enough to power 34 Homes each year was saved
16 tonnes of C02 emissions prevented. Enough to remove 4 cars from the road every year.
975 Thousand Litres of water were saved each year. Enough to fill an Olympic size swimming pool.
Our Water savings program was initiated during 2008-2009, including water saving shower roses, smaller flush size for toilet cisterns/urinals water feature reticulation to save water and gas hot water installed to replace electric systems.
This has resulted in 125,000 litre water savings compared to the previous year. In addition to our recycling activities, we have installed air-conditioner kill switches & energy saving fluorescent globes throughout the hotel. Our Liquor Barn uses paper & recycled plastic bags.
Staff conduct regular nightly cleaning of the entire block we are located on. We also take part in Clean Up Australia day to beautify our Local area.
