The new Shepparton Art Museum build involves many regional businesses and trades. Shepparton based business, Foott Waste Solutions have received Green Star compliance as a Waste Contractor and Waste Processing Facility, leading the way for the waste industry in regional Victoria.
Foott Waste Solutions are responsible for the disposal of all waste from the site including metal, plaster and timber. Many of the materials are recycled or processed so they can be used again, minimising the amount of material going to landfill.
Watch as Operations Manager Zane Foott explains the process and why the SAM project is good for their business, regional contractors and Greater Shepparton.
