Springvale area suburbs part of green waste revolution

August 27, 2018 by  

Several thousand households in parts of Melbourne’s south east, which encompasses the suburb of Springvale, are to take part in a new program which will see food scraps and green waste sent to a newly developed composting plant. Changes to municipal waste programs are often announced with the assistance of brochure printing services.

Federal Minister for the Environment Josh Frydenberg has said that 12,000 truckloads of organic waste will be diverted away from regular landfill to the $65 million plant, which is located in Dandenong South. A Spanish waste management firm named Sacyr built the plant with the assistance of a $38 million Federal Government loan granted by the Clean Energy Finance Corporation.

CEO of the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, Ian Learmonth said the plant will do a lot to reduce harmful methane greenhouse gas emissions:

"With this technology, councils can avoid those emissions by turning their organic waste into re-usable compost."

Householders will be able to use their green bins, which are normally reserved for garden waste only, to dispose of food waste. High quality compost generated by the plant will be used by the eight local councils taking part in the program to help fertilise municipal gardens and parks.

Concern about noxious odours from the plant will be prevented by what Sacyr says is specialist technology to ensure storage units are completely sealed and reliably deodorised.

New GJS warehouse opens in Springvale

November 20, 2017 by  

A new warehouse in Springvale has opened as part of GJS’s strategic move to achieve better product dispatch and delivery times in the local region.

GJS, which has been operational for 39 years, is a supplier that delivers printing products like Beaver Paper, Brother, Epson, Roland, Sawgrass, and Universal Woods. It also supplies a variety of services including promotional products, custom photo gifts, signs and displays, and textiles.

According to Greg Stone, managing director of GJS, the new Springvale warehouse will help to improve product dispatch and delivery efficiency due to the locally stored consumables and equipment. He also added that many of their customers are printing services companies that depend heavily on receiving products and consumables on time, to ensure smooth operation of their businesses. The new warehouse will help to handle common situations in the printing industry today such as rush jobs and last-minute orders.

Customers who place their orders online will be able to receive their products from the new Springvale warehouse after selecting the correct point of purchase.

The new warehouse is expected to be very popular among clients from Victoria, Tasmania, and South Australia. This is based on the feedback received at a Roadshow event where the new facility was introduced to the attendees. Customers have expressed their satisfaction at GJS having a warehouse closer to their individual businesses, allowing them to receive key products required for daily operations via local delivery.
