Staff from Kyocera Mita lived up to the company’s environmentally friendly claims when they spent half-a-day clearing junk from a suburban Sydney park.
Two teams of 50 people, including managing director David Finn, completed two-hour stints in an effort to give Brush Farm Park in Eastwood a facelift. “We pulled out everything from tractor tyres, engine blocks and hot water systems to household rubbish like cans and bottles,” Finn said. “Everybody was enthusiastic and committed, it was a fun day out and we put our money where our mouth is in terms of being environmentally responsible.”
It is the third year running that Kyocera Mita workers have taken part in Business Clean Up Day. The company claims some of its product parts last up to 20 times longer than those of its competitors, significantly reducing landfill waste.
