Creating a sustainable operation

Grasshopper Environmental engaged with Sydney Zoo during the early stages of their construction project to create a sustainable operation with minimal carbon footprint. Sydney Zoo emphasised the importance placed on sustainability and in creating an operation with a minimal carbon footprint. Some of the disadvantages to traditional waste bins include the amount of labour required to empty them. With several waste disposal locations across the zoo grounds, the task of managing all bins would prove to be labour intensive.

Working closely with Sydney Zoo architects, Grasshopper Environmental assessed the requirements for waste management during construction and once open to the public. This involved a full understanding of the volume of waste that would be produced from construction, animal waste, as well as general operational waste. Following this assessment, a ‘best in practice’ plan for waste management was developed, featuring the latest innovation and technology.

Grasshopper Environmental installed Big Belly Solar-powered bins combined with Superfy Waste Insights™ solution. The Superfy solution included sensor devices combined with the Waste Insights platform, which provide reporting, analytics, predictive collection, routing and navigational insights. This innovative waste management solution was positioned at multiple sites within the zoo and provides Grasshopper Environmental real time monitoring capability to manage fill levels, prevent unsightly overloaded bins and ensure timely servicing.
