Compost donation from Sydney Cricket Ground

Sydney Cricket Ground ( recently donated two bags of compost to JSRCG via their environmental partner, Closed Loop Recycling. 

Closed Loop's onsite solution to food waste at the Sydney Cricket Ground reduces the volume of organic food waste by up to 90% of its original volume within 24 hours - the by-product being compost!

All food from the Azure café at the SCG as well as food waste from functions goes into the Closed Loop Organics Unit to be composted.

Many thanks to Juliana Arnaldi at Closed Loop for making this happen.
