The Sydney Cricket Ground Goes Clean & Green with Method

How Method is simplifying corporate sustainability for an iconic Sydney sporting venue


One of the world’s most iconic sporting venues has plans to make their sporting precinct cleaner and greener than ever before, with the help of Method Recycling. Method’s most recent client, the Sydney Cricket Ground Trust and Allianz Stadium, host over “65 major sporting events every year, attracting close to two million fans through the gates. That equates to a lot of rubbish, food and glass that we have to manage,” said a SCG Trust spokesperson.

So far, SCG has installed Method Recycling Bins in their offices, members area and throughout the corporate suites, with the aim of engaging users to recycle, reduce the amount of waste going into landfill and ultimately, reduce carbon footprint.

With over 1,000 tonnes of waste generated annually, SCG’s current recycling rate stands at 65 per cent, but their efforts towards corporate sustainability don’t stop there. “We’ve set the bar at 75 per cent for next year with a long term target of over 90 percent for total resource recovery” said SCG spokesperson, William Konya.

Though originally designed with the commercial office market in mind, the flexibility of Method’s open plan recycling bins are proving to be incredibly effective in public and event spaces just like the SCG, as well as universities, schools, kindergartens and supermarkets. With features like the easily customisable design, the patented mechanism that locks and hides the plastic bin liner, and the connectors that lock the bins together to form a station, all combine to create a beautiful way to promote sustainability.

Steve and India at Method have spent three years crafting the perfect office recycling bin, with the purpose of simplifying the process of office recycling for clients like Sydney Cricket Ground Trust and Allianz Stadium. Looking toward the future of SCG and Allianz Stadium, William Konya says, “we’re committed to a sustainable future and this is a small step in the right direction.”  

Method Recycling will be showcasing some exciting NEW products at Total Facilities, from 29-30 March, at the ICC Sydney Darling Harbour, so please make sure you come down to meet the team at stand C4.
