TBB congratulates developers Rockingham Park Pty Ltd for achieving EnviroDevelopment certification in the Waste category for Parkland Heights!
This is the first development in Western Australia to be certified for Waste and follows Parkland Heights’ certification in the Energy and Water categories – an outstanding achievement!
How Parkland Heights Earned 3 Leafs (Water, Energy & Waste)
A single EnviroDevelopment Leaf is a significant achievment. To achieve 3 Leafs is outstanding. Here’s how they did it:
- Water – Achieved a 20% reduction in mains water use and eliminated irrigation from mains water. Key measures included “Free Eco Water-Wise Landscaping” and free “Water Smart Information Sessions” for all land buyers.
- Energy – Giving land buyers a $4000 cashback incentive on a 1.5kw Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic System, and free “Power Smart Information Sessions” are just two of the measures Parkland Heights is using to achieve a 20% reduction in greenhouse gas production across the entire development.
- Waste – “In conjunction with Earthcare Recycling, Parkland Heights has created a Materials Recovery Centre – a recycling system where civil and builders’ waste can be re-used and recycled at rates well in excess of current industry standards in Western Australia.”* Free “Waste Smart Information Sessions” are also available for residents. These measures promote recycling and, critically, make recycling easy for residents – thereby reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
The Baldivis development is home to 1200 home sites and was previously a State Forest pine plantation.
