Introducing a Circular Economy
Communities are starting to understand the need to move to a circular economy. At Yarrabilba, this means reducing waste, recycling more products, reliance on cleaner power and regenerating our environment. We first launched our Circular Economy Strategy in 2019 and have been recognised as an industry leader within master planned communities. We have embarked on a series of initiatives with contractors, builders, and the community to help turn waste into future resources creating a new era in sustainable living.
Partnering with local schools to deliver sustainability education programs, teaching kids about the circular food economy linking food, waste, composting and growing
