Sustainable coffee scheme thrives in the West

BLACKTOWN cafes and coffee lovers have contributed to saving almost 30,000 single use takeaway cups from going into landfill, in the first 12 months of the Refill Don’t Landfill swap-and-go program.
Rising to the challenges of 2020, Western Sydney coffee drinkers and businesses have embraced the program, placing the region squarely on the map of sustainability-conscious communities.
Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (WSROC) partnered in 2020 with Australian sustainability champions, Green Caffeen, introducing the established reusable coffee cup system to Western Sydney as a way for cafes to save money and reduce waste. 
In its first year, the EPA-funded Refill Don’t Landfill campaign saw 45 local cafes sign up and more than 1000 locals download and register, using the Green Caffeen app. In 2021, WSROC extended participation in the scheme for a further six months.
