Sydney Metro Airport Camden Team Cleans Up

13 April 2010

The team from Sydney Metro Airport Camden rolled up their sleeves on Thursday 1 April 2010 to remove rubbish from the entrance to the Airport as a part of the 2010 Clean Up Australia Day campaign.

“The Airport management team is a regular participant in the annual Business Clean Up Campaign and this year we have chosen to clean up the site was Macquarie Grove Reserve, the road side verge along the entrance to the Airport and our clean up team extended onto the Airport road in the vicinity of the Airport office, said Ms Desiree Lammerts, Environment Manager, Sydney Metro Airport Camden.

“Our team of 20 staff from Sydney Metro Airports Bankstown and Camden collected approximately 1.5m3 waste material from an area less than 300m2. The site consisted of rough, dense regrowth beside the Nepean River. It contained large tracts of privet and some Gleditsia sp, commonly known as the honey locust tree with large spikes.

“The main items the team collected were discarded bottles and general rubbish.  Some unusual items found included a motor cycle engine casing and a plastic inflatable dingy.

“Waste that is not disposed of properly impacts negatively on our environment. We have detailed simple and cost effective actions to reduce waste which can help combat climate change in our Climate Change Handbook, which is available on our website.

“Camden Airport Limited has extensive and dedicated commitment to the environment at Sydney Metro Airport Camden. The site contains an environment protection zone along the Nepean River which the Airport works hard to maintain through our work with Greening Australia and other organizations,” concluded Ms Lammerts.

Ends.
