In 2015 Dr Mick Battam successfully applied for the Waste Less Recycle More grant on a project that has seen him advising on 408 sporting fields around NSW. Working closely with local Football associations, Dr Battam and his experienced team’s key objectives were to provide advice on how to amend fields so they can handle sport wear and tear. The results varied all over the state, some fields were in reasonable condition while others were barely playable.
Dr Paul Lamble discusses the important role organics recycling must play in future development and the issues the indsutry is facing.
Dr Paul Lamble has over 15 years experience in the water efficiency industry. This experience encompasses local, and state government as well as private consulting work. Previously he was Senior Sustainable Living Officer (Water Programs) with Lake Macquarie City Council, which involved “environmental sustainability, water efficiency and water management”.
