Sustainable Products & Partners
Since the installation of Led Lighting throughout the club we are creating more saving for our members as well as cutting down on our energy usage.
Co mingle recycling – The introduction of Co-Mingle recycling system within the club group has been a great success, with only a small 2% of our generated waste going to landfill.
43% of our overall total landfill waste is paper, and thanks to the use of desk paper recycling bins and education of staff we have now managed to make sure that this stay separate from our landfill.
With 860 solar power units and a 100kw system now installed at both the Blacktown Clubs we continue to be an industry leader in this area and will continue to control and reduce power consumption where possible.
We still need to be controlled in our usage of all utilities with future price rises predicted.
EP&T EDGE MONITORING SYSTEM
The edge monitoring system allows us to monitor Gas & Water consumption as well as energy usage ensuring that these utilities are being used in the most efficient and sustainable way.
With monthly updates and statistics we are able to fix areas that are less sustainable and find solutions for future problems.
With the installation of our Pulpmaster 4000 food waste recycling system our land fill rates have dropped dramatically. The food waste recycling system is a cutting edge solution for the recycling of food waste in commercial food business’.
The Pulpmaster 4000 is approximately the size of an average washing machine and allows easy separation of food waste for recovery as a clean source for organic compost and/or for electricity generation through anaerobic digestion.
AQUACELL CLEARWATER TREATMENT SYSTEM
In a first for Sydney, Blacktown Workers Sports Club now recycles its water to maintain their state-of-the-art sporting complex, and it’s all thanks to Aquacell. The Blacktown Workers Sports Club is located on the Harold Laybutt Sporting Complex and features:
- a clubhouse
- two soccer fields
- two rugby league fields/cricket ovals
- two bowling greens
- five all-weather tennis courts
- a baseball diamond
- and a 120-room hotel
Previously all five playing fields were irrigated using a stormwater dam with a 1.4 mega litre capacity. Rainfall is irregular in the area and had recently been insufficient to maintain the playing fields in top condition. Water restrictions also prevented regular irrigation. Because of that the Club installed a wastewater recycling facility on-site and utilise recycled water from the Club and hotel to fill the gap in its water supply.
SPORTS CLUB LAWN FERTILIZATION
Using the pulpmaster food recycling system our food waste is liquidised and recycled through earth powers facility by the use of anaerobic digestion technology and converts solid and liquid food waste into a combustible gas similar to natural gas.
A by-product of the anaerobic digestion process is a nutrient rich sludge, which is dried and granulated for sale as Amgrow organic fertiliser and is used on our fields at Workers sports club.
