Thiess Services: Filbert the Frog
In 2002 LMS and Thiess Services entered into a Joint Venture on the ReOrganic Energy project at Swanbank Landfill (QLD). This sustainable development project was the first of its kind in Australia, integrating waste utilisation, recycling and electricity generation.
Filbert the Frog was conceived as a mascot to assist with Community Education at the Swanbank Landfill. At the time, there were community concerns surrounding correct landfill operation. To help address these concerns, a facility and educational program was set-up focusing on the strict management and environmental controls required, as well as initiatives for minimising waste.
Filbert the Frog was born from the idea that a landfill can operate in an ecologically sensitive area and both can survive together. The mascot is used for Thiess Services’ company and community events, most recently appearing at the Brisbane EKKA. It has won several awards, including finalist for Environmental Leadership and Communications and gold for Ipswich City Council Awards for Excellence in the Commercial Greening Category. Today, Filbert the Frog continues to be a popular and highly sort after mascot at a variety of events.
Darwin Renewable Energy Facility School Tours
The Darwin Renewable Energy Facility is incorporated in school and community services, a unique feature of this site. In partnership with City of Darwin, Darwin Resource Recovery Centre and Shoal Bay Mulch, free school group tours at the Shoal Bay Landfill are offered.
These informative, one hour tours are conducted by LMS Operator Dennis Wright, giving students an opportunity to experience and learn about resource recovery and best practice waste management at an operational site. Mr. Wright said the tours were very worthwhile, opening the eyes of students to the existence of such environmental processes.
