We continually seek to reduce, reuse and recycle waste to minimise its impact on the environment, particularly the areas and communities in which we operate.
Because we operate nationally, we consumer a variety of raw materials and resources. As part of our commitment to reduce our environmental footprint, we focus on operating our business in the least resource-intensive manner. In fact, we have improved our overall waste management by accurately measuring and establishing a waste profile to drive efficiencies and, more importantly, to divert waste from landfill.
|Water source (tonnes)||FY2015||FY2014|

|Concrete sleeper recycling||13,444||17,727|
*FY2014 metal recycling figures were high due to an extensive wagon disposal program.
