Noosa Civic has a number of environmental initiatives in place to ensure minimal impact on the environment. Even our Centre mascot, Wallum the froglet is a native of Noosa.
Bio retention basins
Twelve permanent environmental areas are set aside in our car park. These gardens, or bio retention basins, filter car park pollutants before they enter the nearby natural habitat.
Rubbish bins at Noosa Civic have been converted to include a recycling option. This significantly reduces general waste being dumped at landfill, recycling it instead.
Cardboard recycling bins are located in strategic locations around the Centre and are available to all tenancies. 113 tonnes of cardboard is recycled from the Centre annually.
Rainwater reuse program
A 675,000 litre underground water storage tank has been installed and connected to provide water to the public conveniences and air conditioning within the Centre, reducing previous consumption of the town water supply.
Business management system
Our updated building management system provides real time monitoring and control of energy consumed by air conditioning and lighting.
