Salvos Stores continues to experience year-on-year improvement as it strives to carry out its vision of being the most sustainable charity retailer in Australia.
It is pleasing to see that the volume of waste overall decreased by 8.95% or 1,131.9 tonnes, while greenhouse emissions decreased by 4.8% compared to the previous year.
Total waste costs decreased by 7.4% or $177,244 compared to the previous year, while Victoria’s sub-contracted services decreased by 13% and internal services decreased by 54%. This was partly due to council assistance in removing illegally dumped waste.
Salvos Stores continues to work with local councils to reduce dumping around its stores, along with an ongoing public relations drive to educate our donors to bring their donations during opening hours.
