Cleanaway is proud to have worked with Coles to develop a waste and recycling reference and training tool, to help Coles’ team members with the daily waste management process.
The Coles Waste & Recycling Guide supports the waste and recycling services provided to Coles, which has an ambition to be Australia’s most sustainable supermarket.
The one-stop reference document covers all waste services that Cleanaway provides to Coles as well as information about Coles’ waste diversion strategy and establishing efficient waste processes.
These services have recently been enhanced to include packaged organics waste services and new bins.
Each section of the Guide is dedicated to a waste stream across food, plastic, and cardboard and paper, with images and graphics for ease of reference as well as highlighting the layout of bins, stickers, posters and processes to ensure every stream is optimised and without contamination.
To help team members understand Coles’ waste management preferences, Coles’ waste hierarchy is included, highlighting partnerships with food rescue organisation SecondBite, bread waste collection program through Goodman Fielder, REDcycle soft plastic recycling program and its relationship with farmers.
This tool will act as a central source of information, where team members can find reliable and detailed information about waste and recycling services and processes.
The Guide forms a strong base for ongoing communication and education as Cleanaway helps Coles work towards its waste target of diverting 85% of waste from landfill by FY25 as part of its ‘Together to zero waste’ ambition.
The electronic document is quick and easy to update as the service offering is broadened in specialised diversion streams.
The Guide complements Cleanaway’s portfolio of education tools, including education videos and interactive Greenius online training modules.
