Cath Barlow, manager of Endeavour Foundation’s Townsville e-waste recycling and confidential document destruction service, has said that protecting Australia’s environment can pay dividends for people with a disability.
Speaking ahead of National Recycling Week (7-13 November) Cath said that Endeavour Foundation’s recycling operations not only fund vital services, but also provide supported employment.
“Our services provide people with a disability with training, skills development and regular work, and also help to promote sustainability.
“Endeavour Foundation is at the forefront of e-waste recycling, boosting the recycling rate of TVs and computers and reducing the amount of electronic waste in landfill. We operate under the federal government’s Product Stewardship Scheme, and provide tailored solutions to government and commercial entities, to address Australia’s fastest growing waste disposal problem.
“Our recovery rates are higher than the industry average and our sites are certified as complying with the international benchmark for environmental management, as well as the Australian Standard for e-waste collections, storage, transport and treatment,” Cath said.
“Endeavour Foundation is also a member of the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID), with numerous NAID-AAA accredited sites across Queensland - and our document destruction staff are trained to the highest industry standard. We take confidentiality and secure destruction of documents very seriously.
“We’re incredibly proud to be a part of Australia’s growing social enterprise sector providing business solutions from over 80 sites across Queensland, NSW and Victoria – directly employing over 2,300 people with a disability.”
